Bundaran HI, Jakarta

I am playing with Lightroom at the moment.  It's my new toy.  This is a shot of the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle in the heart of Central Jakarta that I took a few weeks back.  The only reason there is no traffic jam is because it was car free day… once a month on a Sunday, the Jakarta administration bans cars from traveling on the main city thoroughfare as some sort of environmental initiative.  Arguably, it just causes bigger traffic jams everywhere else, and the cars in those traffic jams continue to idle away, spewing exhaust fumes into the already polluted city air.  But you get to walk on the road and take pictures of the CBD without all the macet (traffic), so I guess it's good for something.
