Project Looking Through

I enjoyed being part of Anna Carson’s Project Yellow and have decided to try another blogger project, Mark’s Project Looking Through. The object is to post a photo that gives the viewer the sensation of looking through something.

This photo was taken in Brooklyn Bridge Park, 12 acres located between the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge. This narrow stretch of land is separated from the East River by a paved promenade and a short iron fence.

Click on the image to see the details. Shot through the rails of the fence, it shows the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge and the 32-story Verizon Building, one of the world’s first art deco skyscrapers. All you way to the left, on the far side of the river, you can glimpse the domed roof of the World Financial Center.

Look closely at the surface of the river, between the iron bars, and you’ll see two boats heading beneath the bridge — a long, dark barge and a small, bright vessel with an American flag flying from the stern.

    Great view of a place I’ve never been. I’ll bet this isn’t on the traditional tourist’s agenda, and I like that. Thanks for joining PLT.

    Nice shot. I just took a picture of the view through a bridge–only just because I wanted too. I may have to look into this “Project looking through”. MB

    That’s a really cool shot. Very artistic I think. It does change our perspective on things when looking through something else. Good idea!
