Project 52 Entry #39
We were in New York last week for a family function in Long Island and was able to spend a couple of days in Manhattan. While we had a wonderful time, my visit was greeted with a dull grey sky the whole time we were there…not great for photography, but didn’t stop me from walking the streets of this great city. I’ve been to New York so many times (here’s a little tidbit you may not know…I’m a Musical Theatre nut and actually have a Bachelors of Fine Arts with a major in Drama…ahhh the truth comes out.) but I’ve never photographed the Brooklyn Bridge. I contacted Mark Garbowski before I left to get some tips on where the best place to photograph the bridge from. Mark is a NYC photographer whose blog, Too Much Glass is filled with amazing images of New York. If you haven’t done so already you should check out his site. He suggested that I head down to the South Street Seaport which is where this image was taken.
With the sky being overcast and grey on not too much definition in the clouds I felt that this image worked better in a sepia tone.
