Shadow Shot Sunday - Suspension Shadows


Last week we visited our software developer son in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, and as we traversed the crowded expressways and crossings of our travels. So for this week's Shadow Shot Sunday 2, I requested that the lovely passenger Patti take pics of a subject I really like, the majestic and massive Bronx-Whitestone Bridge, crossing the East River to Queens. Opened in 1939, the towers rise to a height of 377 ft (115 M) above the water, which gives it a soaring appearance. Subtle shadows abound, primarily along the barrier to the right, the light stanchions and from the vehicles of many aggressive NYC drivers. That's why Patti takes the pictures as I navigate the byways :)

Aren't you glad to have a photographer sitting beside you as you journey on?

Yes-better to be safe than insisting on driving AND taking the shot! I can see why you are fond of this bridge.

There is an elegance in this bridge design. Strange, I thought that this bridge would be more busy still with traffic. You must be driving outside peak hour.

What a beautiful bridge and lovely shots too!
