After today's foray to the doctor and the hospital on NY's upper east side for various tests, measurements, and the ultrasound, we breezed over to the East Side Drive and headed downtown to the Brooklyn Bridge. The entire trip to Jessica's should have taken a half-hour. An hour later, we were still sitting in rush hour traffic and hadn't even gotten to the Manhattan Bridge, which comes first. Here it is, in the distance. Not normally one to shoot pix while I drive, I nevertheless couldn't resist while I was trapped on the elevated highway, faced with this gorgeous view. We're getting a little closer to the Manhattan Bridge. Aren't the colors of the sky wonderful? See that triangle under the deck of the bridge? That's the Brooklyn Bridge, a couple of miles away. Obviously, I was moving when I shot this. I knew it would be a blur but didn't care. That shot of pale purple toward the bottom right is the East River. These pix were all shot between 5:29 pm and 5:43 pm today and during the last 8 minutes, the sky changed from the one above to this, complete with jeweled necklaces. The lights in the lower part of this photo are on the Brooklyn Bridge. And below, a closer view before I had to stop shooting because we were finally moving. Going home, it took me less time from Brooklyn to West Orange, NJ despite the bumper-to-bumper through Chinatown to the tunnel. I am happy to be home. hugs to all of you.
