Rush hour nightmares

This is a fictional representation of rush hour traffic:

This is a real rush hour in London:

The rush hour in London was shot around the time I lived there. So at some point, I was on the trains, or crossing the Millennium Bridge or walking across London Bridge or on a double decker bus with the rest of the people in these shots.

This is rush hour on a bike in New York City:

I’ve done this, too, and the secret is, it’s always rush hour in New York City.

And this is rush hour on a bike in D.C.

I bike daily in Washington, and this guy is totally irresponsible. I know where he’s going and there are plenty of bike lanes, so he shouldn’t be weaving through cars and running red lights or hopping on the sidewalk.

And this is what I go through every day in D.C., because this is about a from my office.

How’s your commute?
