Mechanical, wet, wet, old, and reversed.

The last one was from a series of ONE picture I took from my car yesterday while waiting for the light to turn green at Main and Anderson. For the hell of it, I reversed the colors to see what it looked like and liked it much better.

I took these yesterday:


1. Love the outfit - especially the gloves. Looks like she's marching in the Arbor Day parade.

2. Kipps Bend

3. You need a really strong truck for this load.

4. The balloons reflect as someone who I hope is not an airhead.

5. Dad was in the shot (he kicked the ball), but it looks more interesting this way (sorry, Dad).

A STROLL ACROSS THE GEORGE WASHINGTON BRIDGE

These are some of the fun shots I took on 5/25 when I went to the George Washington Bridge to photograph the USS New York coming up the Hudson River as part of Fleet Week (see http://www.hackensacknow.org/index.php/topic,1978.0.html for that shoot).

Basically, I got there too early, walked across the bridge to the 178th St bus terminal and back to Fort Lee on a gorgeous day.


Besides the main event warship pictures, I shot:


1. the Little Red Lighthouse from the Jersey tower

2. the jammed Henry Hudson Parkway feeder ramp

3. the bridge from the upper level of the bus terminal where the buses enter and exit

4. the Jersey coastline south of the bridge

5. the FDNY fireboat "Three Forty Three"

6. the bridge's south walkway

7. under the bridge approach on Hudson Terrace in Fort Lee

Just want to point something out...

In picture #6 (the bridge's south walkway) in post (A STROLL ACROSS THE GEORGE WASHINGTON BRIDGE)

See the Titanium encasement's around the cables that were put in place after 9-11...  That's so the enemy cant drive up with a car or truck explosive and try to take out the bridge...not trying to scare anyone...it's a dangerous world we live in...

1. Cloudy sunset

2. Wheels

3. I took this picture because of the lights coloring the wet pavement - never noticing the pink stretch limo at the credit union door.

4. Almost full moon. This is the best I've been able to come up with using my little Canon.

5. Sun shining on Bogota's version of a skyscraper. Sign is on Rt 80.

6. I posted this elsewhere on this site. I just like the fact that these fireworks were a couple of miles (and a couple of towns) away.
