A View From the Bridge
And that photo above is a photo of the Manhattan Bridge, taken by a friend and their crackberry blackberry telephone from a view from someones most beautiful loft in that neighborhood of Dumbo in that borough of Brooklyn in that city of New York. And I guess that word DUMBO means down under the Manhattan bridge I think. And it is an artist community of some sort. And those phone cameras can come in handy sometimes when it comes to taking photos in an instant on a whim in these days and times of technology. And this photo was taken at night time as only the lights of the city seem to be visible in that photo. And for some reason, one of the topics of conversation I found myself hearing from several people at this gathering was "I got laid off from my job last week". And is this a topic to be found at many parties, gatherings and circles these days. Topics that could be a result of the recession, impending depression and a tightening economy with uncle scam, I mean sam seeming as if he is going out of business and having one of those everything must go sales. And back to that photo again. That is a beautiful view that someone has from their really big loft apartment that sits right on the water of that East River. And I could just sit in their room all day and watch the ships and the boats pass by right in front of their window as my occupation as a full time job if I were to live there. And I guess the title of that job could be called something like boat passing by watcher. And that photo above is a beautiful photo to me. Happy down under the bridge day.
