A bridge into Gotham City

I watched Batman Begins tonight. It’s probably the tenth time I’ve seen it, I think it’s that good. In fact, I like it better than the more highly-acclaimed The Dark Knight. There are various considerations for that, but there’s only one reason I took this photo; it reminded me of the film. I never thought to add it to the blog, but I went looking for it after watching the movie and decided it works. Director Christopher Nolan got some criticism (mostly from New Yorkers) for choosing Chicago as Gotham. It’s got all the art deco and mix of old with new to get the job done. All you really need is dark and brooding, which you have here. I left it messy and dark for obvious reasons. Even the streaks of light off the bridge had me thinking of that famous spotlight.

  2. Monumental….this is what I like about cities….glossy, monumental and brooding.

  3. You take such stunning nighttime photos.

    • I really appreciate that. I always felt night photography was a challenge for me, so I had to pay attention to what I was doing and make it work. It’s great to get that kind of feedback after working at it so much. All the best!
