The view looking north from under the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge. This was taken at sunrise and was the starting point of an all day photowalk with my fellow cohorts from the Arcanum. Twenty miles and fourteen hours later we ended up at the opposite side of this bridge shooting in the opposite direction. It was an epic day to say the least.
Love locks on the Brooklyn Bridge. I wonder if the day will come when these have to be removed. As far as I can tell the bridge seems pretty sturdy and I don’t think the extra weight even registers. Moving along, how cool would it be to leave a lock and then return several years later to see it again? A funny little quirk of how we roll. Sentimentality is a cool thing when it comes out like this me thinks.
These old ships are docked at the South Street Seaport in lower Manhattan. There are not too many places you can see these but this is one of them. It reminded me of Boston harbor only this is New York. My guess is that a hundred years ago the scene wasn’t much different. My how times have changed, …except for here.
I came here to walk yesterday evening. This is the pier in St Petersburg Florida which is empty while the planners decide how to fix it up. In the meantime it’s still a great place to walk or ride with the cool breeze of the bay on a hot afternoon. I love empty open places in the middle of a busy city. A few steps away from the noise and you have a place of quiet and solitude.
While walking around a park in Connecticut I came across this structure that I could see from quite a distance. Turns out it’s a well and according to the plaque it can pump three million gallons a day. To me that seems incredible, such a large amount of water. Maybe that’s normal? I’ll bet they could use this in California right now. Anyway, I was impressed enough that I took this picture.
Just outside of Orlando on I4 is the Florida Polytechnic University. Honestly, I don’t know a thing about it, yet the architecture of the main building is nothing short of amazing. I managed to stop over on one recent trip and capture a few images. This is a study in symmetry and lines. I think if I was a student I would feel right at home here.
Bradenton Riverwalk board park at sunrise. Sunrise is the only time I’ve seen this place deserted. This park attracts crowds from all over and quite frankly I’ve never stepped foot on it. But since there was no one here I took the opportunity to take a few photos. Sure enough, before I was done the first boarder showed up; and then another and another.
Fulton Station is in downtown New York. There are several entrances and this seems newer than the rest. While on a photowalk we were suppose to meet some people near here and while we walked inside to get a few shots of the architecture. Just one of a million locations to shoot in Manhattan.
Last Friday, Battery Park in lower Manhattan was the place to be as the week ended with a warm breeze and spectacular sunset. I was busy clicking away when this couple came up and asked to take their picture and email it later. When I got home I realized that I had them out of focus. Arrrrg!!! Lucky enough I had taken this shot with them in it a few minutes earlier. It was an amateur mistake, but hopefully they can take this image as a memory of that moment together during one of the most romantic sunsets of the season.
