North / South

Of course they mean northbound or southbound, but few signs admit it. Partly this is a shorthand that acknowledges that drivers are travelling far too quickly for nuance, and partly reflects the viewpoint that everything is relative to the highway and its few occupants. Both reflect the dominance of the car-centric design of the city.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
