Good Morning, Manhattan!

(2 photos) Sunrise from the Brooklyn Bridge – that was my goal when I bounded out of bed to catch a taxi to drop me at the beginning of the pedestrian walkway that crosses the bridge. I remember the journey as if it was yesterday, though it was last August. The morning was cool and clear as I ran up the first part of the walkway to catch the beginning of the sunrise. Only one other person was near me on the bridge – a woman using her cellphone to photograph the scene.

I spent a lot of time photographing the sunrise over the Manhattan Bridge, with all its fiery oranges, reds, and yellows.

But as I continued across the bridge to Brooklyn, it was this image, looking back, that really captured my heart. Manhattan was coming awake, and I was there to witness it, in all its majesty. I do so love this city!

    • Hey, Boomdee! So sorry for the overdue reply. Just starting to get back into the swing of things since my move into DC. It does kinda look like I climbed on top, but no, just the view from the walkway. Such wonderful views from this amazing bridge!

  1. I’ll always love Manhattan, and I miss it; I shall return! Sent from Miami where I’m visiting, but its no Manhattan! 😉
