Yesterday evening Avram and I took a walk across the George Washington Bridge at sunset. The weather was mild, a soft breeze came off the water, and the views were fantastic.
We met a very nice young man from Switzerland (which is quite amusing if you know a little bit about my family) who had forgotten his camera and wanted me to send him my shots (right... I needed more encouragement to stop every 20 feet and annoy the bikers trying to pass me....).
By the time we made the trek over to the New Jersey side, the lights on the bridge began to wink on. I took the above shot upon our return to the New York side and I love how clearly you can see "Martha" (the affectionate name given to the lower level) all lit up.
After the sun sunk below the horizon, the moon rose low in the sky a brilliant orange in a relatively cloudless sky, which I thought quite curious.....
About 20 minutes after we returned home, we heard an unexpected and torrential downpour outside our window. I wonder if the color of the moon was related. Any meteorologists out there?
