The Brooklyn Bridge

THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE

Even with all of the dust, smog, exhaust and sometimes unpleasant smells we run across, I have to admit that there is something about the city air that makes me feel at home. As a photographer and artist I spend far too much time alone standing in front of a canvas or sitting at a computer often working through the daylight hours and into the night. When you work as hard as we do, it doesn't leave a lot of time for socialization, but I do adore the company of others. This is why New York is such a perfect place for artists to live. We can get out an walk, and be amongst people. My agenda this day was to soak in the city, and maybe capture a few iconic landmarks with my camera. When I left my apartment on West 23rd and 10th I didn't know where my heart would lead me, but it took me pretty far. Down the west side streets through the village, Soho, and all the way downtown until I found myself at the edge of the Brooklyn Bridge walkway. For a moment I thought about turning around and calling it a day, but then again I had never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge even though I had visited the borough many times over. So ahead I went and stumbled upon this iconic angle at a cross street. I took many remarkable photographs this day, but this one always stood out as a favorite. Maybe you to have stood here at some point and seen this angle, maybe not. Either way,, a standard photograph just couldn't do this iconic view justice so I digitally manipulated it into the work of art you see here. 

This image is available as home decor wall art printed on wood, as a T-Shirt, Coffee Mug, and even a cool pair of dress socks. If you love the city, you'll undoubtedly love the creative ways we preserve and share it.
