Round Robin Photo Challenge - Water



The Round Robin Photo Challenges are hosted by Karen, Carly and Steven and every two weeks they suggest a new topic so we can post representative photos.

The challenge this week is WATER






The photos above are of the NYC Waterfalls Project that was held from June through October 2008.


New York City hosted this exciting public art exhibit featuring spectacular man-made waterfalls 90 to 120 feet (27 to 37 meters).
They were softly lit at night and available for everyone to see. There were 4 waterfalls in total.


My photos show two of the falls: one on the Brooklyn side underneath the Brooklyn Bridge and the Pier 35 Waterfall.

We went down to Southstreet Seaport at the time where we could see all 4 of the falls at one time. They were breathtaking!

Water is the only drink for a wise man.

Hi Mary :)

LOVE the waterfalls! My big daydream is to see NYC one day, and just photograph a million or so places around the city. Sigh... it's so amazingly beautiful there. I admire your shot of the Brooklyn Bridge. I love bridges so much anyway, but I am especially interested in the bridges around New York. Someday... :)

Wonderfully photographed m'dear!

Suzanne R said...

That's a neat way to bring waterfalls to the city! And your photos are spectacular!

Karen Funk Blocher said...

I never heard of this. Very cool! I love that second shot especially.

Jama said...

Amazing waterfall! It's not permanent? I saw it recently on tv, in one of the CSI series.
