This is the new Southbridge area of the Scottsdale Waterfront, Arizona.
There is a reason I live over a hundred miles from the nearest stop light – I don’t have much patience for traffic! This is one aspect I dread when it comes time to city photography. I try to remind myself that all the people around me sitting in their little artificial automobile environments put up with traffic delays all year around, surely I can do it for one day. That reasoning doesn’t usually help for long. So here is my solution. I now try do my city photography on weekend mornings.
At 5:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning, I can make the 25 mile drive to downtown Phoenix in less than a half an hour! I can’t imagine how long that trip would take during the week. I guess I will have to imagine, because I don’t see myself ever actually doing it!
