Photo by myself, from the Brooklyn waterfront.
A city worker takes a moment to admire the Manhattan skyline. Above and out of frame are the Brooklyn Bridge and one of the temporary waterfalls, an urban installation by Olafur Eliasson.
This past weekend, Mark and I drove to the park near the Brooklyn waterfront, for some photos.
It was early and slightly overcast. The city was just waking up.
Street vendors were setting up their stalls nearby. Under tents, they stacked fresh vegetables and flowers from nearby farms. Meanwhile, the waterfall below the bridge was running at full force.
A couple people walked their dogs or jogged by. No one was around, but Mark and I spoke in quiet whispers.
It was like the few of us had the whole view of Manhattan to ourselves.
More photos of the Brooklyn Bridge, to follow.
