WW: Misty Brooklyn Bridge

I know I have bombarded this blog with some snaps of Brooklyn Bridge.
But what can I do? Whenever I go there, it always shows its different faces of beauty I cannot ignore.
Like this misty one..

misty Brooklyn Bridge
I got misty....

love this setting :)

Set in vintage filter using my Ztylus, Misty Brooklyn Bridge is quite a view.
What do you think?

WW: Brooklyn Bridge with love

This is truly the season of joy and love..
To stay blessed and be grateful :)

And Brooklyn Bridge is a perfect place to share precious time with your loved ones :)

one of the latest addition to NYC;s landmarks :)

 Really thank my hubby, Rudi Frakarsa,  for immortalizing these moments for us :)

Come on link up with me and have a lovely bloghopping in this blessed Wednesday :)

Brooklyn Bridge through my smartphones

Brooklyn Bridge is indeed one of the landmarks here in the big apple.
Even for those who stay here for some times, like us :). 

Take the subway, walk a little bit and there we are.. 
Arriving at one of the most iconic bridges in the Big Apple.

Coming back to spend some evening (and also afternoon) with the kids and Udi, we can't help but take pictures here and there. And most of the time, we are too lazy to bring our camera and voilaaaa, we pretty much depend on smartphones.

We all know that smartphones are indeed smart. 
Panorama? Checked.
Selfie? Checked.
Short movie? Checked.
Slo-mo video? Checked.
Time lapse? Checked.

Everything is at your finger tips.
One magic button and you have them all :).

So I was looking at my photo album and I just realized that I have thousands of photos. Surprised, surprised..
As I am transferring most of those treasured, immortalized moments from my phone to my PC and later to my external hard disks (Yes.. I have used 3 1 -Terra-GB for all those photos and videos ;)> ), I found that I have some from the Brooklyn Bridge.

Some were taken last fall, some from recent visit this spring and the beginning of summer.

All of our visit to the oldest bridge using hybrid cable-stayed suspension in this country is always rewarding. And it is also easy to go there...Either you are heading there with the help of Waze or Google map while driving your car, or take MTA Subway line 6 to Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall and walk a bit, you are good to go :).

Once we got the sunset.. 

Then the twinkling sceneries of Manhattan at night, as well as sweet ice-cream session in this beautiful bridge.

when the night comes..

The construction of this bridge was done in 1883 and up until now, you can see Brooklyn Bridge in many movies, TV series, souvenirs and even chocolate :).

There is something about looking at Manhattan with East River as the foreground. 
I have to say it is bellavista that I can't get enough of.

Manhattan on the other side..

We have passed through the bridge with our car as well but we haven't tried to walk across the bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn or the other way around.

So far, my favorite spots are the Brooklyn bridge promenade, the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory and Pier 6. Bo et Obi loves this promenade as well as it is perfect for scootering :)

It's just simply rewarding to witness this beauty. 

How about you? Do you like taking pictures with your phone? What's your favorite object(s)?
