    Hey Everyone,

    I know that I generally don't post much Cityscape stuff, but my wife and I are trying to photograph more in Manhattan (where we live). Here are some shots from this weekend:

    Hey James... was the Staten Island Ferry shot taken from the Brooklyn Promenade as well?

    They were all taken from about the same area. It is possible that a few of them were taken in areas adjacent to the Promenade.

    The Brooklyn Bridge

    These are a couple more from last week. Chanthee and I did sunrise there this morning, however, it was not the best sunrise of the decade, so we contented ourselves with mostly looking around and doing exploration.

    These are a couple of more from the same series of photographs on the Brooklyn Bridge. Obviously, they were taken on two different mornings. It is a great illustration of how different light may change an entire scene (LOL, and a heaping of haze). My wife and I have been heading out every couple of weeks to this area to get the 'perfect sunrise.' So far, it has been avoiding us...but we have found some interesting things none the less. One more stab, I think...and then we move up to Queens for midtown Manhattan shots.

    _MG_1863-001_brbridge_w.

    _MG_2499_hdr_w.
    Canon EOS 20D    ---    70mm    f/10.0    1/30s    ISO 200

    Hey Mark,

    Silly question (believe me, I know it is silly) - but the Rock at the Center...is that the reason for the name?
