Photographer's Note

The decision to drive cars long distances to work was common among people in North America in the past 60 years. Cities grew larger. The development of suburbs often placed homes far from work places; massive road construction encouraged extravagant car use.

Emissions from passenger vehicles are increasing in the US despite attempts to make engines more fuel efficient and despite the addition of antipollution devices. The two main reasons are: 1. vehicle use has increased; 2. cars were getting bigger and pick-up trucks, vans and sports vehicles often replaced smaller, lighter passenger cars.

I was driving a car when I shot this...
in a day like any other,
in a city like any other.
I also drive a car in my country.
I also see this in my city.
