Brooklyn Bridge

Two days earlier, New York City was hit with a massive storm and the anticipation for the trip was a little uneasy of what to expect. The anticipation is always worse though because this day turned out to be better than one could ask for. It was a short photo shoot but walking the Brooklyn Bridge supplied many other photo shoots without the Traveling Blue Mushroom. Walking this bridge was an awesome experience and gave you a real feel for the history of New York City and an appreciation for the beauty in the architecture. Walking along the scaling intersecting cables and under the massive rock towers that help to distinguish the Brooklyn Bridge from almost any other bridge in the world really give you a sense for 'They don't make them like this anymore' and considering that it has been standing strong for over 120 years proves it.

Top of the Rock - New York City, NY


Ah, the city that never sleeps, one of the most popular cities in the world and possibly the greatest! What doesn't this city offer would be the more appropriate question to ask when looking for something to do. Starting with some real sightseeing at nearly 70 stories up on the '30 Rock', 'Rockefeller Plaza' 'Top of the Rock' at about 21 degree's fahrenheit, that's not including the ever so blustery windchill that seems to gust right on cue for a picture and chills you right to your bone. The view was stunning, purposely went later in the evening after the sun had been long gone for this glittering glow of lights. The view, lights, and horizon speak for themselves!
