Photoblogger Stopped from Taking Snow Pics on Ninth St. Bridge
This is a photo of snow on the Gowanus from photographer Joe Holmes that we found while looking at snow pics on flickr. It's a great pic, but what's even more s interesting about it, though, is what is in the description. Mr. Holmes, whose photoblog Joe's NYC is very highly regarded, writes: "...taken seconds before I was told that photography is prohibited on the 9th Street bridge because of 9-11 concerns. Those crafty terrorists -- blow up the 9th St bridge, and they'll bring this country to its knees." We have taken thousands of pics from all the bridges over the Gowanus and haven't realized we were endangering national security. Thank God he wasn't taking photos of the Atlantic Yards site.
