It’s been SUCH a long time since I’ve posted an non-Fashion related Excursion piece on the site (like, last year) so I’m glad to kick it off photographing what has to be one of the most beautiful locations in the world: the Brooklyn Bridge.

One thing I’ve learned, and has paid off, is that no matter where you are or what different plans you had in mind, if you’re inspired by that very moment…CAPTURE IT.  I was already “photo’ed out” by finishing my {glorious} second NY Fashion Week season which ended the day before, and I just wanted to eat my chipotle chicken wrap and bask in the NY skyline’s glory on an unusually warm February day.

But I couldn’t help it.

My spirit couldn’t hold back the excitement it had over both the architectural elements of the bridge and the onlookers who, unasssumingly, added even more beauty and inspiration to the scene.

VIEW MORE PHOTOS AFTER THE JUMP!!!

This desination has inspired so much that I plan to make a well-planned photo project in the near future.  What you see here is “on-the-spot”… I can’t imagine what can happen when there’s deliberate focus!

This was the second time I’ve visited this bridge (the first time was in September, when I almost cried).  There’s no denying that this is one of my most favorite places in the world.  Can’t wait to visit over and over again now that I’m a NY resident.

{BTW…all of the images featured here are available in prints 😉 }

  1. When I first saw a small version of the next-to-the-last picture of the bridge, there was no context, and I thought I was looking at an ancient temple (like those in Angkor Wat) reflected in water.

      1. I also enjoyed that picture very much. Travis, is this how you shot it, or did you do something to mirror/reflect the images. It’s sooo….I don’t even have a word to describe it…but it kind of makes me dizzy. 🙂
