New series of photos by fine art photographer Michael Massaia that sort of looks like long exposure photos of the night sky with trailing nebulas but these are actually pavement with white stones highlighted by headlights and long tar patches. Were it not for the parking lines on some of the photographs, the images could easily be mistaken for the Milky Way galaxy. He explains:
A while back I was driving at around 3am and I pulled over because I was tired. I started to stare at the highway, and the white stones embedded in the pavement. The white stones were glowing from the headlights of the oncoming traffic. The black "tar snakes" patches were splicing through the glowing pavement. I actually became disoriented and felt as if I was viewing a crystal clear star-lit sky.
