Finding Art in the Most Unlikely of Places

When it comes to aerial photography, most people think of aerial shots of landscapes or cityscapes. However, there is a whole other world of aerial photography that is composed of geometric shapes.

The photographer often has to get creative in order to capture such an interesting shot, as he is moving at 150mph. This is especially true when shooting aerial photos for purely artistic purposes. It is up to the photographer to decide how to best capture the scene before them. But with a little creativity, even the simplest aerial photograph can be transformed into a work of art.

Weaving Freeway Overpasses

Looking at this aerial photograph, it's hard to believe that it's not a work of art. But in fact, it's a real photo, taken in Ontario, California. The shapes and patterns are formed by the freeway overpasses and streets below, all coming together to create this accidental masterpiece.
