..i’m a bit bleary-eyed from the buffet i ate.. *burp* i think i see a pentagram.. hmm.. better get to sleep..
..this one was obviously taken at the brooklyn bridge.. early morning too, so i was among the few pesky tourists around the area..
..the twin beams of ‘tribute in light’ returned yesterday for a one night tribute to all those lost on 9/11 as well as those who worked in its aftermath.. the lights were located at West & Morris streets in Lower Manhattan, was on since sunset up until dawn this morning.. a plethora of people came out in droves to witness it yet again, including a BUNCH of photographers shown here..
..a leisurely stroll towards Brooklyn, turn to the right and voila..
A weird steampunk sculpture erupted underneath the Brooklyn Bridge. To celebrate the 125th anniversary of the bridge, this structure was put up. It looks like a cannon poised to blast Manhattan..
Hardly anyone knows that a secret tunnel runs deep beneath the Atlantic Ocean. In May 2008, more than a century after it was begun, the tunnel has finally been completed. An extraordinary optical device called a Telectroscope has been installed at both ends which miraculously allows people to see right through the Earth from London to New York
and vice versa.
Yesterday was the kickoff celebration for the 125th anniversary of the Brooklyn Bridge. The highlight of the night was a Grucci fireworks extravaganza. There also was a concert by the Brooklyn Philharmonic so I expected a lot of people to show up at DUMBO. This was taken at Brooklyn Heights.
Cold days like this make you want to cower in the warmth of your bed or in our case, surf movies in our local theater. We were planning to watch Cloverfield but got tickets for Mad Money instead to qualify for the “early bird” rate (yeah, we’re cheapskates). It was a good thing that the former didn’t go first, lest we suffered dizziness & headaches throughout the day – my temples are still throbbing while writing this. I mean, really, it was a poor judgement on our part not to read about the movie before hand. Honestly, it was crap. The remedy for our headache may have been the next movie, Meet the Spartans, which was totally hilarious. I highly recommend this.
The nightscape pano above was taken at DUMBO last December. On the movie Cloverfield, they obliterated the Brooklyn Bridge. Watching a monster rampage around Manhattan feels kind of weird because the setting is so familiar. It makes you wonder what to do if you were in their (the characters) place. It still doesn’t change the fact that the “shaky camera” style sucked big time.
What visit to NY wouldn’t be complete without visiting or gazing at the Brooklyn Bridge? It’s just so pretty to look at. It’s like a gothic eye candy. lol. This bridge is one of the oldest steel suspension bridge and used to hold the record for being the longest. The seeming mediocrity of this shot is spawned from thousands of shots taken at this spot. (Manhattan side) Try googling it and you’ll see what I mean. Basically everyone who has been here with a camera shoots the exact same thing.
