I really like the way the zoom to the center looks. There is something about the way highways can turn into bows that I like!

I’ve had this imagery for a long time but never did anything with it because I felt that the USGS made a poor decision in buying this imagery for the contracting company. Essentially, aerial photography taken in the afternoon (my guess is around 4pm) has large of shadows that obstruct the view of the ground and in my opinion, worthless. Nonetheless, I finally made something of downtown L.A. and as I look at it again, I think the shadows add architectural stitches to the quilt. Geographic Chiaroscuro.
This is one of my first maps which has it’s source imagery made beyond the scope of a normal tessellation. Back in December I was preparing the source imagery for Lincoln Memorial Quilt, I decided to try something completely new in photoshop. I used the 45 degree rotated imagery of the Lincoln Memorial as a frame around circular cutout of the first derivative of the Superdome Quilt. I liked this tile (I think I am going to use the word tile from now on) so much that I actually saved the tile as something I was going to print out as is, but now I have a derivative tiling that I will definitely print out.
