“I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn’t photograph them.” –Diane Arbus

When I photograph a landmark, such as the stunning curves of the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge, I strive to capture a unique perspective. It can be difficult, especially with places that are frequently photographed. I want to make an image that stops a person in their tracks, a person who has seen that place over and over, and exclaim “I never saw it like that!” I’ve heard it a couple of times and it is one of the best compliments a photographer can receive!

When I captured the photograph below, that is the feeling I was going for – an altered perspective. It isn’t a postcard shot of the bridge (though I have a few of those, too). Rather it focuses in on a few of the details while also allowing other East Village jewels to shine (the dome of the library and Petco Park). I also felt that the split-tone processing really made this image unique.

I hope you like it as much as I do!
