The Brooklyn Bridge, New York

1

One of the most well-known sites in the Big Apple, it is actually one of the "must-sees" in my New York itinerary. During my visit, I was staying in one of the boroughs in Brooklyn and this popular landmark served as my link to the fast-paced city of Manhattan.

One of the places that I listed down in my Moleskin when I was starting to plan for my New York excursion was the Brooklyn Bridge. This bridge links the boroughs of Brooklyn – where I was staying, to Manhattan. It’s amazing how so many pictures and even movies were inspired by this place through the years.

To get here from Brooklyn, we got to the nearest metro station, which is Clark, then we walked a few blocks ’til we got to Brooklyn Park. This then took us right to the great bridge.

We crossed the bridge towards Manhattan at 30ºC. The bridge was divided into two tracks, one for pedestrians and the other, for cyclists. It was awesome to see the huge structure – with the bridge’s arches and the steel cables that held it. Right in the middle you can find the story of how the bridge was constructed in 1883. From the bridge, you can enjoy the sight of the skyscrapers of Manhattan as if you were in one of those Hollywood movies set in New York. Aside from a great view of Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge also crosses the East River, which gives you a good look of the famed, Statue of Liberty.

Brooklyn Bridge is definitely a place that is not to be missed if you’re headed to New York City.

    Stalking the City: Ricardo Lozano

    New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
