Photographer's Note

Hello to all TE friends!

Here´s my shot from the famous NY!
The POV is from under the Manhatten Bridge. The Bridge you can see is the Brooklyn Bridge (it´s one of 2,027 bridges that connect the two islands). During the construction of the bridge 1869, more than 20 peolple died. They had to build a deep base and the workers had to dive very deep. They died because of aeroembolism. A few days after the opening, a woman twisted her ankle and screamed very loud, so the people thought the bridge was going to collapse. In this panic 12 people died and 35 were injured. Of these 35 people 22 died in hospital.
Well, these were the unlovely things of the bridge and its construction, but the lovely things are, that the bridge is very beautiful. It also makes it possible for 100,000 people to get from Manhatten to Brooklyn every day.

I hope you like the photo!
Best regards,
Kris
