Patriotism #313

If you google “Brookly Bridge” tons of pictures come up with all the imaginable angle of views, seasons and hour of the day. So it is really challenging to take a shot of this famous bridge showing something unique. Despite this, let me contribute to the tsunami of shots with my own version.
I took the shot hand held walking through the busy crowd approximately in the middle of the bridge. I emphasized the architectural geometry, the lines and shapes of the bridge. The symmetry helps to make the picture more balanced. The black and white conversion enhances the abstract impression. Furthermore, the cables provide a nice linear perspective. The flag is the icing on the cake so to speak. I manipulated the photograph to my liking using Photoshop.

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
