Brooklyn Bridge View From The Manhattan Bridge

 

The Photo Of The Week Challenge #1 "Bridge"

I walked over the Manhattan Bridge to get a glimpse of the Brooklyn Bridge for my Photo Of The Week group on Google Plus. But my high sprite soon fell when I saw the Brooklyn Bridge under construction and half of it covered in sordid off-white canvases. I had given up my evening cocktail hangout for this, so I kept on walking, thinking the fresh air will be of some purpose. When I got to about the bridge mideast point, I figure I might as well shoot something. I decided to make a silhouette of the Brooklyn Bridge to hide some of the squalider drape covering it. The result is the photo above.

The photo I ended up submitting for my Photo Of The Week however, is the photo below, which came by somewhat of a surprise. I did not know I had it until I got home and downloaded the lot.

Disappointed with the Brooklyn Bridge being under construction, I started shooting the graffiti on the Manhattan Bridge, when I notice the riders were waving at the camera, because they thought I was shooting them. I went along shooting the riders just for fun. But it wasn't until I got home and downloaded all the images, did I fine this gem. It just goes to show that the Brooklyn Bridge may be prettier, but the people on the Manhattan Bridge are friendlier.

Leaving The Madness Behind. The bridge less traveled.
