Waterfall in the City – Theme Week: Oddities (5/8)

Waterfall in the City

Waterfalls in the city? How odd!

I was very excited to be in New York City during the time of the New York City Waterfalls art exhibit. The exhibit brought together two of my favorite things to photograph – New York and waterfalls. The waterfalls were created by artist Olafur Eliasson and were installed between June and October 2008. I thought they were quite a stunning installation. Moving water and waterfalls are beautiful and unexpected in a city, especially under the Brooklyn Bridge (which was my favorite).

I was much less experienced in 2008,  taking snapshots on automatic mode. I was on a moving boat, so a longer exposure would have been more difficult anyway. At the time I only shot in jpg, but I ran that through Lightroom to enhance the color a bit – the midday lighting led to a washed out look in the file right out of the camera. I don’t think this is the best shot one could have taken, but it is one I like nonetheless because of the unique subject.
