Photographing the Brooklyn Bridge

I took these photos back in October of 2010. I was going to meet my wife downtown for dinner and a movie, and had some time to kill. It was a very windy and cloudy day, which made for some nice dramatic skies, so I thought I would take some shots from the Brooklyn Bridge. I was finding it hard to get any angles of the bridge that I hadn’t seen before, so I took a new approach… photos of people taking photos of the bridge.

It turned out to be a lot of fun. My favorite shot is #6. He looks like he is praying to the sky, but he’s actually looking taking a shot of the rigging. The other shot I really like is #10. The guy on the left saw the woman in red taking a picture with her slr, and decided she knew what she was doing and copied her shot. I had to laugh, because I’ve had people do the same thing when I was shooting with my slr.

One of the photo tips you read about often is to turn around and look behind you when taking photos of a sunset. Sometimes the best shots are not where you think they will be. In my case, they were standing next to me doing the same thing I was.
