The art of transit

photo by smoovebert, via Flickr

I found this photo on Flickr of one of those long, character-less hallways at Los Angeles International Airport. The image was taken in 2006 with a Pentax Optio point-and-shoot and processed with Photoshop. As I’ve written before, I define “transit” loosely for our “art of transit” series — if a photo involves getting from Point A to Point B, I’ll consider it for this series.

To submit a photo or photos of something transportation-related, post them to Metro’s Flickr group or email them to The photos we’ve featured can be seen in these galleries on Flickr. Or click on the ‘art of transit’ in the categories box at right.

  1. Actually, this hallway has more character than some of the “hidden passageways” I’ve seen at LAX.

    The connector passage between terminals 5 and 6, for example.

  2. But the mosaics along the left side of these original LAX terminal tunnels are quite special.

  3. Oh, don’t call it one of those “long, character-less hallways”! I’m excited every time I come back to this terminal (T3, I think) and walk the long multi-colored retro mosaic that stretches all the way along the left wall.
