A view of New York from Brooklyn

Last night I was shooting with André Walker in Brooklyn, at the foot of the Manhattan Bridge and further south looking west to Manhattan. What a good time we had. It seems like it was difficult to get a bad shot, as I was thoroughly excited by the power of the city, and the bridges that connected to the island. We arrived after sunset but there was still some color in the sky. We were treated with a fireworks display near the Statue of Liberty at about 9:30. We then made our way back to Fulton Street and shot around the base of the Manhattan Bridge. I have a weakness for bridges and could have stayed there all night. Next time we will take the stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge and shoot from there. André provided the transportation and I realized how important it is to have a “local” guide who can get you around quickly. This save both time and experimentation and is invaluable in a place like NYC. This city is huge, and you can waste a lot of time trying to get around and find good places to shoot. We are just beginning to explore this place, so you can expect a lot more from me on locations.
