One of the main roads into Leicester has had a pointless flyover for as long as I can remember. Travelling over it on the bus as a kid was always pretty thrilling, being so high off the ground, and whenever I’ve rode a bike over it, it’s always felt like I was breaking some law or other.
The flyover is being pulled down. There has been great debate and the usual nonsense in the local press about the disruption that will be caused for a few days during the work. I’ve seen no comment about the huge open space it will create and the link it will provide between the city centre and ‘the Golden Mile‘.
After the lessons learned shooting my second assignment (that featured only shots in the dark), it seems to be something I’ve a taste for and the set I took could almost have been submitted for the same assignment, featuring points, curves lines etc. Have a look over on Flickr.
