The DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) neighbourhood of Brooklyn has amazing views of New York from across the East River. After spending a couple of hours wondering around it with my camera I moved a few blocks south along the bank of the river and found myself in Brooklyn Heights. Much of this area by the river is a construction sight at the moment but I did find my way to the promenade which you can just see in the lower right hand corner of this photograph. When I’m photographing cities I often forget that the camera can zoom, wanting to capture as much as possible and so mainly shooting wide angle. However the advantage of a zoom lens can be seen here. The bridge in the foreground is the Brooklyn Bridge with the blue colour of the Manhattan Bridge behind. The tall skyscraper on the left of the photograph is the iconic Empire State Building.
