It’s a tricky thing about Pebble Beach over in DUMBO: everybody wants a shot of that most iconic of bridges – that bridge which shall remain here unnamed – but it is the Manhattan Bridge that is most photogenic from this very spot. And why not the Manhattan Bridge? Is it not also magnificent in its scope, scale and design? Is it not also a triumph of human ingenuity?
It’s not just that monumental bridge that keeps drawing me back to this image. In particular, it’s the way she’s leaning back. The whole scene is quiet and youthful and it seems like they are just going to stay there, waiting for the sun to set as they watch the ships go by.
