** Not OFFICIALLY the Airport, BUT it CAN take you there LOL (so, it CAN work in the Airport Theme ;-) **

If you look closely, that blur in the background (left side) is the Moving Metro Rail....possibly heading to LAX!

10-second shot, at f/20 roughly at 11:30p

    Wonderful, Ahmed! It is amazing how busy a city can look with no crowd in sight; as if it has a life of its own. The motion of the train reinforces that. I love all the lights. A very beautiful shot.

    i was born in long beach and i moved away a long time ago. i like your photo for its euro-pop-metal-chrome feel to it. it sparkles and shines and i can still see the bums and homeless off to the side waiting for the stupid.
