A Moment in Time: 1am--110 Night Traffic

The beginning time slots for this year's photo challenge are going to be a bit of challenge. Trying to decide to stay up or set an alarm is going to be a constant conversation for our images.

With the historic Arroyo Parkway/110 State Route/Pasadena Freeway just across the street, I've captured images of moving cars multiple times, but never at 1am, so I figured I'd head over there.

I hope you enjoy the series.

To see what Sarah and Molly are up to, here are their blogs. I've also included their images below.
