From Fulton Landing to Governor's Island

Recommended Posts

Well, I decided to head out to Governor's Island today. Pretty nice place if I might add, though they still are doing changes and portions of the Island was closed off to the public due to construction on the old Coast Guard buildings. Here is a small fraction of the shots I took.

Very nice pics, your pics seem to always come out very good. What kind of camera do you use? Is it a Digital SLR? Are you using a polarizer filter?

I have a Nikon D40 DSLR, no polarizer filter on it though I need to get one.

The way the sky is coming out with such contrast in the pics it looks like there is a polarizer filter on. Pretty nice. Nikon is the best IMO.

Excellent shots. That cannon mounted on a movable pedestal is sick. And I see that Grimaldi's was a mob scene, as always.

Thanks. The Canon is not movable. I tried it lol

Thanks man!

Picnic point was closed by the time I got around to it which was like at 6PM, so I walked back and took the ferry back to Manhattan.

 

Very nice shots especially liked the one of the puddle reflection shot :tup:

Thanks.

The island has played an active role in pretty every major war, but I think the last time those cannons were actually fired were in the 1780s. There is an awesome cannon and cannon ball monument at John Paul Jones Park on 4 Avenue at 101 Street in Bay Ridge. I'd assume that since your avatar is the R train logo, you'd probably know where that is. If you haven't seen it yet, it's worth the trip down there, especially now that the weather is nice. :cool:

Is that picture from this past spring? I pruned some of the trees right around the monument, and I was surprised that the one within the fence near the tower looked as decent as it does, though you can't see much of it. Anyway, I love that cannon, and that's a really nice photo too, with the bridge and and the trees leafing out. :tup:
