For a while, I’ve been itching to shoot a footbridge at Brooklyn Bridge Park when at night to capture the lights. But a problem I kept facing is that the bridge as a trailbridge so it’s intentionally made to be flexible, in other words, it bounces when people walk. Cool concept, not so great for long exposures at night. A few weeks ago, it was cold and rainy and completely miserable outside. The kind of night you don’t go outside unless you absolutely have to, so it was the perfect night to capture the lights and skyline without having to try and time in between passers-by.
As I was down there, some serious fog rolled in up the East River. I hurried as quickly as I could before it dissipated and grabbed a couple shots with all it’s eerie effects.
Now that it’s officially after Thanksgiving, I feel like I can post these. Even though I shot them in the past two weeks as I was walking home from work. Both were taken on my phone.
I was a little bored, so I took the camera out around the Times Square area to do some extended exposures. I only made a handful of images, but it’s always fun, because you never really know what you’re going to come away with.
I was walking home yesterday evening when I saw this and just had to shoot it. I loved the way the Chrysler Building just jumped out from in between all the other buildings. Now my only problem is I don’t know if I like the black & white or color version better.
