So the bottom line is, as a Boston boy, I don’t know New York’s Bridges. Well, except maybe the Brooklyn Bridge. Its been photographed as much as any other structure in this world. I should be able to recognize it as easily as I do the Eiffel Tower, or Roman Colosseum. So when I was there, shooting the Brooklyn Bridge a few weeks ago and saw this beast right next to it, I had to ask its name.
Brian was more than happy to educate me. He replied, in classic Brooklyn fashion “Seriously, you don’t know? Its the MANHATTAN f’ing BRIDGE, you moron!”
OK. That’s not a direct quote, but it was implied. It would be like shooting Boston’s Fenway Park with Brian and him asking me, “Who plays here?”
Such is the nature of friendships among photographers from rival cities.
Anyway, I hope you like the shot. A long exposure, high key treatment of the Brooklyn Bridge’s younger sibling.
