Always Look Under The Surface

Shot:
When visiting Brooklyn Bridge Park you can get so close to the bridge, it is almost like you can touch it. These bridges are seen by so many as they drive back and forth daily whether for work or pleasure. I would be willing to bet that not many of them ever take a walk below to see the under side of the bridge that gets them where they need to go daily.

Bridge View

Shot:
A nice long exposure view of the Brooklyn Bridge with the Manhattan Bridge in the background. Some great clouds, great color, what more could I ask for on this day. I was out shooting in Brooklyn with a great friend and really got some great weather for shooting.

Beneath The Bridge

Shot:
When you head into Brooklyn Bridge Park you get amazing views of both the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. It is really neat how up close you can get the Manhattan Bridge, it is like you can touch it. This is definitely another super popular shot but I love it anyway. You get this from the north most end where you can align yourself right in the center of the bridge.

One World Trade Framed

Shot:
At the north most end of Brooklyn Bridge park if you line up correctly you will be able to line up WTC directly in the middle of the legs of the Manhattan Bridge tower. This is the first time I walked that far up on the walkway. I am usually concentrating on the Brooklyn Bridge or south of it. The area further north provides some great views, especially of the Williamsburg Bridge as well.
