Brooklyn Bridge

I have been on the Brooklyn Bridge on numerous occations, but the first time with a camera was on our one year stay on Long Island. There are just so many picture opportunities. The bridge itself, the different views and all the people walking on it. Some taking a stroll while others with purpose. It is definately one of my favorite bridges.

Water Tower in New York City

This picture is taken from the Brooklyn Bridge, towards a water tower, using a telephoto lense. I thought the background with a glass facade made an eminent framing.

Landing.. Landing..... Ouch

Someone threw some food to these birds and with only 5 degrees fahrenheit in the air, they took advantage of this little treat. A food frenzy. One second everything was normal. The next second they were coming in from all directions. I guess this would be the situation at airports if the air traffic controllers really went on strike.

Birds out of Focus

I should actually call this "The Best of the Worst", because I do like this picture even though it's not in focus. My wife had been taking pictures of these ducks for a while when I arrived. She had already got her shots from this distance and was moving in. Before I was aware of what was happening, the ducks were on the move. I hadn't even got around to play with the camera settings yet.

One good thing about having a dog is that you sometimes end up stopping the car at places you otherwise would have driven past. At one of our pit stops, we ended up at a small harbor which seemed to have been deserted for decades. It was a mecca for odd things to take pictures off.

Even though there is nothing wrong with the original, I did play around with Photoshop to bring out the color just a bit. I also just had to try this one in b/w.. and I really don't know which one I like the best.

Little Italy, New York, USA

This photograph was taken in Little Italy in Manhattan. The setting was sooo Italian and a little further down the block was an old Chevrolet from the sixties, all shiny and ready for action, playing loud Italian music from the car stereo. The man looked the part and it's one the portraits I am most satisfyed with.

Unknown Bug

We have been invaded by a special bug at work. I tried searching the internet to find its name and origin, but no luck so far. Even though these guys are not welcome in a Nursing Home, they make for a great motiv for macro pictures.
