Early this evening I went in search of photos for a perigee moon. Of course it was the optimist in me that actually made me believe that with all this cloud cover there might be a picture to take. But alas, the moon could not been seen through the clouds. In the end, I wound up on the Hudson River Walk in Tarrytown. I thought it was a logical place to practice night photography since I know it really well. Besides, lately I’ve been obsessed with shooting as many pictures of the Tappan Zee Bridge as I can – since it is slated for replacement. When I got to the river, I saw that the water was like glass and it was reflecting the lights coming from the bridge.
For me the Tappan Zee has always been there, its like a fixture, a permanent part of my memories since childhood. When I was little, we used to cross the Tappan Zee Bridge on the way to Lake Mohonk where we spent our family vacation. Even as a small child, I loved going there and associated the bridge with that trip so much that even at the age of 3 or 4, I got very excited when I saw it from the car. I know its past its prime and needs to be replaced, but it is sad to see it go….
