A Bridge Too Far?

Here are a few more pictures from my fellow Longwood High School Alumnus, James Dentel.

James is an outstanding events and fashion photographer.  Check out his Facebook page here: Photos by JD.  (Many of them are easy on they eyes, guys.)   The photos are below are just shots taken on his way to work, but James tells me that it’s funny how people really respond to them.  (I don’t know why I dig them so much, but I do.)

Any New Yorker will know that most of these are of the George Washington Bridge (or “the GW.”)  The exception is the photo second to last — that’s the Verrazanno-Narrows Bridge, one that I myself have traversed too many times to count.
