Sunrise from the East River Ferry

15 Sept 2011//7:05am   From the East River Ferry   1/320   f/9.0     ISO100   150mm

Got up early and took the East River Ferry from 34th Street to Wall Street.  It is a nice ride and offers a good views of the city as well as the Manhattan, Williamsburg and Brooklyn bridges.  This is looking at Greenpoint.  It is always a good day to be on the river.

Greenpoint Sky

Posted by alifeinthecity on August 14, 2011

12 August 2011//3:27pm    Green Street, Brooklyn       1/640    f/13       35mm      ISO 320

Whenever I get out of Manhattan I remember what the sky looks like.  The Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn is still low, lots of 3 or 4 story buildings with residential mixed with light industrial.  It is changing though and the glass tower condo is starting to sprout here and there.

1/500    f/6.3      62mm lens     ISO 400

This morning I spotted these two window washers enjoying a moment before starting work.  They were not paying attention to the view here, I wonder what the view is like 40 stories up on a window washing scaffold.
