sci-fi lima
lima doesn't have a subway system like buenos aires, nor does it just rely on regular buses. instead it's kind of mixed the two and created a special bus lane with regular stops at specific stations called el metropolitano. sort of like a tram without the tracks. it's good for people like me as i find the worst part of getting on a bus, particularly in a new city, is not knowing how much to pay, where to ask for and when to get off. anyways i was taking this picture on a bridge over one of the stations outside estadio nacional when a policeman came over. at first i thought it was to tell me off, and i was ready to get all defensive. however after the language barrier crumbled down a little i realised he was advising me to be careful as is wasn't the safest area to be waving around an expensive camera. he then kept watch as i counted down the seconds of my long exposure. i could think of a fair few other places where his deterring presence could come in handy.

this shot originally had the national stadium on the left, along with some nice car-light-trails. however i liked the sci fi look of the metropolitano station so chopped it in half and mirrored it. not a very subtle effect, but i've only done it a few times before. anyways, here's the original
