Eights go East and Fives go North

The Eights go East the Fives go North
La Mesa, California

Metropolitan area with interchange and connections
Fly-by-nights from Riverside
And out of state plates running a little late
But the sailors jockey for the fast lane
So 101 don't miss it
There's rolling hills and concrete fields
And the broken line's on your mind
The eights go east and the fives go north
And the merging nexus back and forth
You see your sign, cross the line, signalling with a blink
                                                             -
Tom Waits, Diamonds on My Windshield

If you're from San Diego all this makes sense.  If not, give Mr. Waits a listen.  These lyrics come from the album, The Heart of Saturday Night

I'll check out Tom Waits. Like your photo, the vertical lines and the angles are very interesting.

An alternative song to caption your photo could be old 5th Dimension song Loves, Lines, Angles and Rhymes. You got some angles and lines going there...

Took your advice,
Very nice,
Song and pic together,
Freeway weather.
