The Wall Street Bull.
Mary Youngblood, Grammy winning flutist, was preparing for a public concert in the NYC Customs House/now a museum.
The city that never sleeps...........Gotham.
Many artifacts of NYC are stored below ground in vaults and tunnels. Some, are kept below the roads of the land bases of the NY bridges. The arched sections under the Brooklyn Bridge hold original material used in construction of the bridge and borings of the rock beneath it's structure and the East River itself; taken before the bridge was built. I had the luck to view some of it 30 years ago. The bridge is now undergoing renovation but I wonder what is stored in this section?
The light of early morning illuminates to top of these mountains in the warm colors of sunrise. Later in the day the scenery changes continuously until the darkest skies of night are illuminated with millions of stars.
It's hard to photograph large things without some perspective. I often use the motor home to aid me here, but in this shot, .................well, it's kind of like....You had to be there!
(clicking on photos will often give you more detail, /click on them Twice and you get still larger ones)
