#366: Brooklyn Bridge

Surprise title, no?
David and I went to NYC for a half-marathon.
He finished in 1:58:54, meeting his goal of under two hours.
The day before the race we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge:
 The towers have a cathedral majesty.
 ‘For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.’
A completely unexpected sight:
 Little locks with names and dates hanging from the bridge.

 Beno and Tene, true love locked in.

City towers of steel and brick and flowerpots on the roof.
Lack of a yard is no deterrent to a true gardener.

Even the mightiest of bridges can use a little help.
Duct tape is always appropriate.
