Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

Weekly Photo challenge: ESCAPE: Moving in New York sometimes is better by bike or by using a skateboard as calculated with the car. Since there are ever waiting times – like here on the Brooklyn Bridge during rush hour. Take a train. Or as for the upper class: a helicopter.

“the ardent oceanic” commented there: “… One of my greatest joys in NYC is to make it across the Williamsburg bridge faster on my skateboard than the people in their cars.”
the NYC resident Allyson (scroll down) comments: “… I do promote the bike as a more maneuverable form of transport here. But, of course, having your own heliport to fly to and from the City with your hair in the wind is so much more NYC dramatic. Yes, the upper you want to go from the traffic, the “upper” you must be…”

my comment there: The risk for photographers is always to end up in kitsch or getting stuck in the cliché. The message is usually much more important than artisan details… following bravely to your [Cheri Lucas] topics at the Weekly Photo Challenge, I see clearer now, step by step, which are the most interesting topics / terms / tags / messages – many of your ideas have been inspiring – thank you for that!

  4. Escaping the city can be difficult, and you sure caught that well here! With a bit of nostalgia in the background (WTC), and the clearly recognizable Brooklyn Bridge arch…perfect in black & white.

    Sometimes while riding bicycle around town, I like to pay the game of picking out a car and seeing how long I can either keep up or pass it. Very cool shot.

    That is so much a pictured experience for many who drive here, especially during rush hour. I do promote the bike as a more maneuverable form of transport here. But, of course, having your own heliport to fly to and from the City with your hair in the wind is so much more NYC dramatic. Yes, the upper you want to go from the traffic, the “upper” you must be…

  33. I can remember many times being stuck in that kind of traffic when I was living in Brooklyn. I took the subway because of it. I was born, raised and lived in Brooklyn for 3/4 of my life. I met my hubby there, too. He bought me the Brooklyn Bridge. He had a ring designed for me in the shape of the Brooklyn Bridge cables. Such a sentimental guy.
    Nice post for the challenge – escape.

  37. Good advice to likely take a bike, hopefully it is safe to ride bike there. When we landed at Kennedy airport on our way back from Europe, the airport staff were most helpful and treated us like royalty.

  52. I’m glad I haven’t had to commute like that to work for a while now. I escaped it! My commute for many years used to be over an hour, each way, in slow heavy rush hour traffic.
