If ever there was an area where I would have expected my nighttime photographic activity to attract attention, then this is it, because the streets at either end of this very short block are five lanes wide and typically have heavy traffic, even at the late hours when I'm usually photographing (i.e., between 10:00 pm and 2:00 am). In other words, I am usually quite visible.

But not this time, as I spent more than an hour photographing a half-dozen scenes along this block and although a police car drove right by me (and quite possibly two police cars, although I can't be certain because my attention was directed elsewhere), it did not stop to hassle -- er, question -- me, as has increasingly been the case of late.
