LAX and Back

This afternoon I was a passenger on a trip by automobile from Pasadena to Los Angeles International Airport and back. I amused myself by taking pictures out the window. Except for the two Terminal 2 pictures all these shots were taken from a moving vehicle somewhere on the Pasadena, Harbor or Century freeways.

I like the "close up of previous shot." I like the concept of the background being the subject. I think it would be nice to produce a movie in which the real story takes place entirely in the background.
