Traffic Never Looked This Good
As a boy I used to drive out to the airport with my dad to watch the planes land. Understandable enough. The mystery of flight, impressive machines. Watching trains go by is also an enjoyable activity. I'm not quite sure I've ever heard of anybody watching cars and trucks go by. In Copenhagen, however, the traffic is a non-stop symphony of movement. If you're not in the midst of it on your bicycle, you are actutely aware of it rolling steadily past. It really makes you feel as though you are one with the society in which you live. It certainly doesn't hurt that much of the traffic is frightfully stylish.
The simple traffic act of merging from one lane into another is elevated to another level of aestheticism.
And if flying is your thing, there are different ways to fly.
