(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!
