Bridges | New York City & Portsmouth

Today I wanted to feature a few of my favorite bridges on this planet we share.  Above, is one of my shots of the Brooklyn Bridge from a recent trip into the city.  I wanted to get a somewhat fresh take on the bridge that thousands of people have photographed thousands of’s definitely one of those shots on every photographer’s bucket list.  I plan to get back and shoot more, but this was another one I’m happy with in the meantime…and I thought I’d give a bit of an antique treatment to honor the age and timelessness of the structure.

Below you can enjoy one of my simple shots of a beautiful late evening over the Piscataqua River.  I don’t think I’ll ever tire of the view…I enjoyed the deep blues in the evening sky with the faint hint of orange from the setting sun.  The freighter and the lights on the bridges and the reflections add a peacefulness to the shot that keeps me coming back.

New York City by Night (and Snow)

Today’s post features two of Manhattan’s iconic buildings. Above the Chrysler Building can be seen looming over the streetscape, illuminated by the street lamps and cabs all reflecting off the wet streets thanks to the evening’s flurries. Below, the Empire State Building is wearing its Christmas colors and illuminating the surrounding flurries in contrast to the dark streetscape below.

I rang in the new year with my sweetheart in the New York/New Jersey area. After getting dinner on New Year’s Day in the city with friends, I asked (pleaded) for a quick drive past some landmarks to snap a few shots. Always happy to have the chance to shoot!
