photoblog image GW BRIDGE.....

GW BRIDGE.....

This is the George Washington Bridge, and this is the view from my friends apartment. We sat up on the twentieth floor watching the view as we munched on meat and onions...people from my country will know what I mean when I say "SUYA"....really good stuff.

You can find out about the Bridge here http://www.panynj.gov/commutingtravel/bridges/html/gwb.html

The bridge is named after the first president of the United States, George Washington http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Washington

What a view and your capture is exceptional.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Sherri...I have been meaning to send you an email about some shots on your blog which I love. Will get right to it.
Very striking, I like the way the apartment buildings continue the line fromt he bridge.
Ada Emihe: I love it too. I only noticed that when I was looking at the picture on my laptop. To think that I was only interested in the bridge. The whole scene sure brings it all together. Thank you Nigel.
Extremely good work here smile
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Guys. But I must say this. What would I have come up with if you hadn't showed me a better way to process pictures? What would I have come up with if you hadn't told me to practice and shoot everything and anything ? What would I have come up with if had not "LISTENED"..to all you wonderful shutterchancers? Don't really want to know were I'll be right now if I had done anything differently!

Looks like an intro scene in a movie...Brilliant!
Ada Emihe: Thank you much Babz.....Like your take on it. An opening movie scene.

and my next 'tenerife' was to ask you to wiki 'gallopin' gertie' grin
Ada Emihe: Ha! I just did Draw...That was scary. Can't believe that happened. Tat bridge was flapping around like paper. I felt sorry for the dog..but some pips who left comments on there were taking the animal rights thing too far. The man must have been terrified now!!! If it's me I will faint! what will happen to the dog then eh!!! Thank you for liking the image...it took a lot of work to capture. My bloddy hands kept shaking.

That Suya u mentioned has got me seriously mouth watering smilesmile

Love the composition, colour tones and contrast of the steel structure against the greenery. Ur high point view really paid dividend. It would be nice if u get a mid evening shot of the same scene smile
Ada Emihe: For real Fotografa,,,,,u better go get yourself some. I will try and get a mid evening shot as soon as possible. Thank you for liking grin
