This past weekend, following the 4th of July, My family and I took a trip to visit my father in White Plains, NY. For those of you that don't know, White Plains is a mere 30 minutes from NYC. It was Sunday and after we arrived and visited, ate and conversed, it was getting on to the evening hours and both my parents had to go to bed as they work Monday morning. With little going on I decided to hop in the car and travel down to Brooklyn Heights to see the view from the Brooklyn Heights promenade, a favorite place to view the city for many and used in movies often, such as Annie Hall among others. I got in the car and a mere 45 minutes later I had arrived. I grabbed my camera and tripod and walked onto the promenade. I was unprepared for the view! To my left in the distance stood the Statue of Liberty lit up in all her glory, to my far right, the Brooklyn Bridge, Empire state building standing tall behind it. In between these two iconic set pieces was the rest of the NYC skyline, almost close enough to reach out and touch on the opposite side of the East River. I snapped a few photos, but fearing that I may need a permit to photograph here, I did not want to overstay my welcome. So I took my photos, packed up and headed home. It was a short lived adventure, but one that I will plan to recreate very soon, with all the appropriate paperwork, and 3-5 hours of time to shoot every detail I can. Here are a few shots from the evening, hope you enjoy!
