The ongoing labour dispute at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach has left cargo ships and trucks with nowhere to go.
Mike Kelly is a LA Photographer who had a unique view of the Port congestion as he flew into LAX on a commercial flight. With an interest in infrastructure Mike couldn’t wait to get back up into the air and photograph these amazing images.
Mike Kelly said on his blog “I saw all of these giant container ships anchored offshore and instantly knew that I had to photograph it. It was one of the most exciting experiences I’ve had doing aerial photography — being that far out at sea, with the huge swells underneath you, and these massive, massive container ships everywhere was like living a scene out of Walter Mitty’s life.”
