Brooklyn Bridge After A Snow Storm

We had a huge snow storm on Friday morning and as a result, my office was closed. So a couple of out-of-town friends and I decided to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Why you ask? Because we could! This photo was taken as we got on the bridge from Brooklyn Heights. You can see the skyline of Manhattan in the background.

So what was the craziest thing you ever did during a snow storm?

Ming, this photo is absolutely WONDERFUL. Well done, dude! :)

I'm going to bed with this gorgeous image of your city. Thank you for the treat. :)

This is kind of creepy in a beautiful sort of way. It is really odd how it toys with my brains.

What a strange contrast: the skyscraper's silhouette in the background and that nice little bridge, so old-fashioned.
And so much snow, terrible. We haven't seen a snowflake this year (we seldom do in Cologne, in the Rhine valley)

wow, Ming....I absolutely love that photo. Your need to have it framed and displayed in a gallery. For starters, it would look great in my apartment.

Jealous! We had to go in and work. It was pretty terrible out.

I love the bridge. It's really one of my favorite places. I love the part where you can look down at the traffic, and getting to the promenade is so nice.

Great shot. Looks cold!

Great picture and adventure:) Hope you had something hot when you got to the other side.

Very nice picture. I like the low hanging clouds partially obscuring the buildings. It might have worked as a B&W too.

craziest thing i did during a snowstorm was not stay my ass home.

Thinking Fool said...

Wow, Ming. This picture is awesome. Major props extended your way.

Hmm, craziest thing I ever did in a snowstorm... probably drive voluntarily!

I love this photo. It really is beautiful. I can feel the cold, and sense the City looming in the background. Well done!

Craziest thing in a snowstorm? Walked home, three quarters of a mile, after leaving a nite-club drunk at 3:30 am. But not before stopping at the all night bagel joint for a bacon cheese melt on a sesame seed bagel.

Did I mention that when I got home I realized I had no shoes on?

I think I love this shot even more than today's Ming - meaning tomorrow's if you see what I mean.

Chris said...

I agree with Jilly. I do, however, question your sanity in wanting to be out in that stuff. ;-)

Craziest thing: We drove around Atlanta during a snowstorm. Of course, a snowstorm to Atlanta is 2 inches. ROTFLOL

I don't like snow and winter, but I really like your photo!

Never experienced a snow storm before. Even when in California, the place where I live did not have such a heavy storm.

This is a stunning photo and Raghav Talwar has a very good eye. Unfortunately he doesn't have any blog yet and / or email. I like that guy
