Brooklyn Bridge

I was saving these for Photo Monday but Reasons.

1. I haven’t finished the dress I created yet.

2. Current mommy and girls crafting projects aren’t finished.

3. Progress on any of my projects cannot be photographed due to crappy weather.

So today.  I was going to call the post Photo Monday, part 2 or Photo Friday with a question mark but I’m feeling just as crappy as the weather so no wannabe witty title.

These photos.  I took them last Sunday morning.  I dropped Mr. Mouse off at the Staten Island ferry and walked all the way to the bridge and over it.  In my mind, I was going to have some beautiful sun and beautiful pictures.  But it was cloudy and there was construction and I was so very disappointed.  The images in my mind weren’t there.  But I was on the bridge and I had planned on taking photos so I took photos.  They didn’t look like anything special  right then.

When we got home, I uploaded everything to the computer and just got a glimpse of my bridge pictures before focusing what little energy I still had on getting the Mr. Mouse pics up.  That glimpse was enough to intrigue me.  And this week, I went back to get another look once, twice, thrice.  Each time, I liked them just a little bit more.  Those clouds that blocked the sun gave them all a bit of a monochromatic look, allowing the lines to shine.  So I took them further along that path and made them black and white.  Then, I had a little fun with the colorize function in Gimp.  Just a wee bit of color to make them a little more dimensional.  The grey tones were a little flat.  I brightened them up a touch and  bumped the contrast up a little and now, they make me happy.

I think the one with the Williamsburg bridge in the background is my favorite.  But they all make me really really happy.
