Stemmons Expressway at Continental

Photo taken August 18 from Continental avenue facing East across Stemmons Expressway and beyond to downtown. I love the big trucks in this shot, including the upper deck of the overpass which is the exit from Stemmons onto Walton Walker Expressway, locally known as "the canyon." The canyon runs between downtown and the uptown/Oak Lawn section of Dallas where AA Center is and Victory Station is being developed. Soon ahead to the slight left this vista will also include a fabulous high-rise residence designed by French wonder Philippe Starck.

Directly behind me is the bridge across the Trinity River which will be replaced sometime in the next few years by the first of 3 new bridges to be built here using designs by the famous architect Calatrava. I know. big woop.
