The art of transit

This dandy photograph is not of transit — but certainly shows the alternative to it, i.e. sitting in traffic. In this case, the traffic is trying to enter the Holland Tunnel, which goes beneath the Hudson River and connects Manhattan to New Jersey.

The photo is by wesbs, who explained it this way on Flickr:

The traffic at the Holland Tunnel NYC, really at almost anytime of day!

I recommend everyone trying this at your next traffic jam, first make sure you are at a full stop (safety first) then let your eyes go out of focus, and the nasty ridiculous traffic jam turns into a beautiful display of colorful blobs. 🙂

The photo was taken with a Nikon D90 with a 105 mm focal length at 1/125th shutter speed and f/5.6 aperture setting and an ISO of 200.
