Weekly Photo Challenge. Connected: Brooklyn bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge is a hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge in New York City and is one of the oldest bridges of either type in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. It has a main span of 1,595.5 feet (486.3 m), and was the first steel-wire suspension bridge constructed. It was originally referred to as the New York and Brooklyn Bridge and as the East River Bridge, but it was later dubbed the Brooklyn Bridge, a name coming from an earlier January 25, 1867, letter to the editor of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, and formally so named by the city government in 1915. Since its opening, it has become an icon of New York City, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972.

Tandem Bike

The tandem bicycle or twin is a form of bicycle designed to be ridden by more than one person. The term tandem refers to the seating arrangement (fore to aft, not side by side), not the number of riders. A bike with two riders side by side is called a sociable.

Patents related to tandem bicycles date from the late 1890s.

Wimbledon: The Championships

The Championships, Wimbledon or simply Wimbledon, is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and widely considered the most prestigious. It has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London since 1877. It is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments (Majors), the others being the Australian Open, the French Open (Roland Garros) and the US Open. Since the Australian Open shifted to hard court in 1988, Wimbledon is the only Major still played on grass, the game’s original surface, which gave the game its original name of “lawn tennis”.

These photographs show a crowd of people every year go to see this event.

Reflections on Photography by Henri Cartier-Bresson

street_photo_cmll“Manufactured” or staged photography does not concern me. And if I make a judgement it can only be on a psychological or sociological level. There are those who take photographs arranged beforehand and those who go out to discover the image and seize it.

For me the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant wich, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. In order to “give a meaning” to the world, one has to feel oneself involved in what one frames through the viewfinder.

This attitude requires concentration, a discipline of mind, sensitivity, and a sense of geometry -it is by great economy of means that one arrives at simplicity of expression.

One must always take photographs with the greatest respect for the subject and for oneself.

from The mind’s eye.
Writings on Photography and Photographers by Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908–2004).

Do you agree with Cartier-Bresson?. Maybe you agree on some things. I like his words but I am not so strict in some ways. I recognize that the great French photographer had thought a lot about his photography, its justification and meaning. And his photography was consistent with the way he saw it. But I admire a lot of people who “take photographs arranged beforehand”. In photography, I think there is room for all styles and I love a good photography whatever style. We’ll talk more about it soon.

Today’s photography it is not an easy photo, it isn’t a beautiful flower or a wonderful landscape, but for me it could be a good photo, if it weren’t for the average photographer. ..

street_photo_cmllThis candid photo of street in Venice is nothing new, but I think it’s always nice to revisit the issue.

I found the scene so beautiful and suggestive that I shoot the photo instantly.

Londoners

Londoners

street_photo_cmllAll major cities are a bit like, have similar traits. However, each city also has its own characteristics, that make them unique. London is one of these.

London is the capital city of both England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames, London has been a major settlement for two millennia, its history going back to its founding by the Roman.

Samuel Johnson1
London is a leading global city, with strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism, and transport all contributing to its prominence.
Its streets are unmistakable.

London is a city I love. I’m hoping to return soon.

street_photo_cmllI found this cute puppy in the streets of Brussels. Its owner was not there and he took care of their belongings and waited some charity while protecting from the sun with fashion sunglasses…a funny and quiet dog.

Half an hour later, the dog was in the same position, alone.
He moved only to groan slightly when someone gave him a few coins.

Dog is man’s best friend or not? Anyone doubts?
