Crossing Brooklyn Bridge 1

By NevJB
Now this ought to be straightforward, but it is most definitely not! The first problem is finding where to get on the bridge - there is a distinct lack of signage for the pedestrian. Secondly, woe betide any dazed and confused (so bad it's not true) tourist if they stray into the cycle lane - the cyclists normally want to be where they are going by yesterday and do not display much patience and understanding. Rebukes range from a relatively kind, 'Get out of the way' to far worse; or, simply a whistle blown as they approach at break-neck speed. If that doesn't get you, the traffic fumes from below will.
Having said that it is iconic and well worth the effort of crossing - if only to get some great 'street' shots. The guy in this image is a serious cyclist - you judge that by his focussed expression, wing mirror on helmet and de rigeur cycling gloves. Oh, and there was a pretty young girl too GrinGrinGrin
