Bridge Beams and Summer Sky - A Williamsburg Bridge Impression
Contest Number: 178 Contest Theme: Architecture Lens: Pentax Takumar 28mm f/2.8 Camera: Pentax ME Super 
Posted By: MewersDad, 06-01-2021, 08:55 PM

The Williamsburg Bridge carries vehicular traffic and the J,Z, and M trains of the New York City Subway across the East River, connecting Manhattan's Lower East Side with the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
There is also a bicycle path and a pedestrian walkway, from which this photo was taken on a June afternoon.

Shot on Ilford Delta 100 film. Pentax ME-Super with Takumar 28mm f/2.8 through Red #25 filter.

Great shot. I love the camera angle. This shows film's ability to let us really "live in that moment." Good luck.

Really lovely perspective. It doesn't rely on luck or other gimmick and it's not just a boring shot of some chapel ceiling. Just plain observation and composition.
