Framed Bridges

Post 8 of 8 in the Brooklyn Bridge Park series. I found many ways to frame the bridges.

Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges

2 of 8 posts. The first two photographs were shot from the Manhattan side.

Brooklyn Bridge Park

We attended a walk in Dumbo led by photographers who gave talks and classes at OPTIC. We split up into groups. I went around Brooklyn Bridge Park with Camille Seaman who gave a talk on the Polar Regions at OPTIC. She is a Shinnecock Native American photographer. I like her message and style of teaching. There was a filming of the Best Man… taking place there too.

Gowanus and the Brooklyn Bridge

I like to shop at Whole Foods in Brooklyn by the Gowanus Canal. I also edited an old photograph of the Brooklyn Bridge while testing the freeze in Photoshop.

Brooklyn Bridge Park

It was nice to go to this East River park in Brooklyn, New York, after the rain when there are clouds and nice soft light.

Two of the Manhattan Bridge supports were being taken away by barge, presumable for repairs.

Someday when I would like to go to the The River Cafe. When I feel I can burn up a wad of cash.

Bridges at Sunset

I have been super busy lately and it took me a long time to prepare these. The light changed as the sun set so I made a lot of pictures.

The evening at Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo was very dramatic with a storm and lots of atmosphere.

I added a bolt of lightning that I saw strike the Freedom Tower to the first photograph.

Dumbo OPTIC2019

Three solid days of Optic2019 by B&H are finally over and I have time to start processing the images taken during the excursions. I woke up too late today to take in this one in for the free critique that was part of Optic2019 day four.

My fellow photographers and I boarded double decker sightseeing busses outside B&H at 6:30 pm on June 2nd. We crossed the Manhattan Bridge to alight at Brooklyn Bridge Park for photo shoots at various locations along the shore.

While taking the photos for this composite by the East River with a slow shutter speed I was doused head to foot with a wave. It tasted salty from the mixed waters of the estuary.

At about 8:30 pm we piled back on the busses. On the way home there was a huge thunder storm and we all got soaked, either from being on top of the bus or after getting off the bus.

I can’t thank B&H and everyone involved enough, especially David Brommer, for making this event so much fun. #OPTIC2109
