Behind The Photo: Brooklyn Bridge Hike

So tired!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes there is more to a photo than what you see. This is Behind The Photo where we explore the story behind the shot, from why we took the picture to interesting history and tidbits of the subject.

Tired and exhausted, we thought it would be a good idea to hike across the entirety of the Brooklyn Bridge. How far/ hard could it be?? We learned pretty quickly what we had decided to undertake, but we were determined! Also, the view! Unfortunately I hadn’t thought to bring a tripod with me and balancing my camera precariously on the edge as cars zoomed by underneath didn’t seem like a great idea.
