Although this shot was taken at 5am in the morning there was a surprising amount of foot traffic on the bridge. Especially cycle traffic.

Various comments from the passers by were.
“Crazy Brit”
“Hey cool idea”
“You english?”
“WTF, get out of the cycle lane dumass!”
and my favourite “Hey he’s a real Weisenheimer”

Time was running out as I had to get back to the hotel where my lovely bride would be stirring from the unbroken sleep she had.
I grabbed as many variations of this shot as I could and made headway for Manhattan as fast as I could.

I hope you like it.

Where – Brooklyn Bridge & Manhattan, New York.

Canon 5Dmkii, 24mm TSE, f11, 200th sec, ISO 100. Lightroom 4.1 desat to B&W.
