  1. Oh sweet! Not just an awesome sky, but that's a perfect angle of the bridge. And the tram car is the icing. Bravo!

  3. Probably my favorite parts of NYC - and this is very odd, considering my aversion to open heights - are the bridges. I especially like taking the elevated over the Williamsburg, and there's something thrilling - if a bit scary - about going from Brooklyn to Manhattan on the Manhattan Bridge.

    Damned if you would ever get me into the Roosevelt Island Tram, though! :-)

  6. What a terrific capture, Daryl, as usual. I love Kim-d's quote from the Simon and Garfunkle song! Fits the scene!! Love it! Have a great weekend!

  9. What a great shot. You caught the tram at just the right moment, and the blue sky and steel lacework look spectacular from that angle.

    I've just been catching up on your recent posts. It's hard to choose a favorite, but I do love the bus in the snow and the Christmas greens in the trash. You seem to be able to find "the shot" everywhere you go.

  11. I LOVE this shot! I need another trip to NYC - with more than a quick free morning to walk the streets and shoot - if I'm going to come home with anything remotely approaching this.

    You've reduced the massive scale of these engineering marvels to something anyone can grab a hold of. Great, thinking photography, as ever.

  12. Amazing perspective on that bridge and the tram car is an added bonus! And, on top of all that is a glorious blue sky! Wow!

  13. I really like your shot of the bridge. They braced them to be sure they would never fall down.

  17. What a cheerful sky. It's been dreary here too much this winter. I need a string of sunny days to perk me up.

  20. I luv this shot, too, Daryl! You've really put up some terrific compositions lately...I'm taking notes!

    Thanks re: closing...tomorrow at 10, then out to celebrate!

  21. Very good, Daryl!
    What a fine, clear blue sky contrasted against the muchdarker lower part of the image. Nice capture of the geometry of the tram. Reach around, pat yourself on the back and say "Atta girl!"

  22. The triangles! The triangles! Look at how many they are, can you imagine having to count them all?

    The first thing I zoom in one are all those triangles - the other shapes draw the eye too because they stand out in their non-triangle-ness.

    This comment brought to you by sheer exhaustion and a strong desire for a vacation.

    But even so, love the triangles!

  24. Beautiful shot Daryl! Have you ever taken this tram? I think I did when I was a teenager - barely remember it.

  25. Very interesting sight to take. I like the cable car that pass by at the top. It adds that special feeling to the photo. Beautiful.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  27. Great Daryl! I always thought the Queensboro (59th street bridge)bridge was one of our ugliest spans here but i like how you have it against the blue sky and with the tram car there for scale.
    Wonderful work!

  28. Great shots of the geometric shapes in the bridge and lines of the tram car against the pale blue sky!

    ReplyDelete
  29. A giant erector set! And who rides in that tram?
    Lovely blue sky and a delightful visit, as always, my friend!

  30. You captured the bridge so well against that beautiful sky.

  31. I love, love this! Trams do something for me.

    Just FYI, there is no way I can catch up at this point, so I'm going to try to show up a little more frequently and stay caught up. And please be under no obligation to respond to all comments!
