The Brooklyn Bridge and Court at Night
One of my favorite places in the world is the Brooklyn Bridge.
When I was a kid I used to stay up way too late watching TV and Thursday nights on NBC were a thing of beauty. I would start with The Cosby Show (narrowly beating out This Old House on PBS), segue into another Cosby Production with A Different World. Then Cheers. And lastly Night Court would come on.
The show’s open started off with a shot of the Brooklyn Bridge at night. At that time, the Twin Towers stood behind it. It was always so comforting to see that shot as I was getting tired at 9 years old – 9:30 at night with school in the morning, anxiety already festering about the day ahead.
I took a Canon C100 up on the bridge and tried out some new lenses and used the music from another show I loved growing up to make my little love letter to the bridge that helped me dream when I was young.
