Feeling Groovy

The title of this post comes from the Simon and Garfunkel song The 59th Street Bridge

Ever since I heard the song by Simon and Garfunkel I dreamed of visiting NYC and seeing the bridge.

I was 6 when the song came out and probably heard it about that age and remember reading or being told about the 59th Street Bridge and saying to myself I would visit and see it one day.

I never expected at that age or even in my early 20’s that I would ever make it to visit NYC, but its funny how life can give you turns good or bad and you can never know what will happen.

Not only did I visit NYC and have worked here for over 21 Years now, and I am still fascinated by this bridge, and I see it most work days and I will miss viewing it when I retire at the end of this month.
I know I have shared many shots of the bridge but I do love this bridge and think there is never too many shots of it :)

And this first shot is from Roosevelt Island which I have only visited two or three times so I haven't shared to many from this angle.

And another hsot from on Roosevelt Island I went with a Mono edit and a slightly different style from my normal mono edits, if i have a normal that is, but this is an edit style I havent tried before and was quite happy how this came out.

Running out of words to add to this post so let me add the lyrics to the song

The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)"

Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobblestones
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy
Ba da da da da da da, feelin' groovy

Hello, lamppost, what'cha knowin'?
I've come to watch your flowers growin'
Ain't'cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in doo-doo, feelin' groovy
Ba da da da da da da, feelin' groovy

I got no deeds to do
No promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
Life, I love you
All is groovy
I am not sure if this shot is also from Roosevelt Island or from the Manhattan side.

The mono conversion looks awesome, my friend, and a big print would look great on a wall.


I would be quite !DERANGED if I didn't give you a !BEER and a !COFFEEA for this $trdo post 😉

I was playing around with different edits in lightroom and photoshop and was quite happy with it but was not sure what there’s would think, but it seems to be popular

———————————————————————————————————

in days of old there was !COFFEEA and !BEER, which is kind of !DERANGED when you think about it

Sometimes playing around will bring good results and this shot and edit is great.


A !BEER has to be cold and a !COFFEEA has to be hot to taste good and not !DERANGED 😉

Ohh yeah I hope I can remember how I did this style lOL

That's a problem I have sometimes - I cannot remember what I have done with an image to make another image look the same 😉


A hot morning !COFFEEA is very important for me to wake up, but later on a cold !BEER would be nice to have 😉

Ohh yeah for me as well I tried to do a similar edit last night and have no idea how I did it LOL

That's why I never delete the PSD files in Photoshop, because if I need such information I can always have a look there, but unfortunately that does not always work ... so, you are not alone my friend ;)


A !BEER has to be cold and a !COFFEEA has to be hot to taste good and not !DERANGED 😉

I just save from photoshop back to lightroom and dont keep the PSd file, perhaps its something I should do especially for new edit styles LOL

I may not be !DERANGED but I share deranged tokens, similarly I don't drink !BEER anymore

The mono edit is awesome! Nice job. By far my favorite of this post hands down! If I had an office building that would be blown up and hung on the wall like a poster. Nice shots!

Thanks I was trying a new style of editing and playing around and i loved that shot, since i eave my office soon I wont print it o but if I have a small home office when I move I may well print that one out

Nice photos and especially the second :D

Thanks. Was so happy with how that second shot came out, I wasn’t sure what others would think of it LOL

The bridge photos are amazing. It is so nice when everyday things hold so much personal meaning.

Thanks and I think the regular views of the bridge may well be what I miss most when I stop working n the city

I love the song and always wondered why the title is as such. Now I know what the bridge looks like but still can't connect the lyrics to the Bridge. Are there cobblestones around the area? Flowers around the lamppost? Or does the bridge make one feel groovy? :)

Just asking. I guess if I see the place in person I might be able to relate to the words.

The pictures are great. I like best the last one.

How this song came to be is an interesting story, apparently the police department confiscated a huge amount of weed and burnt it near the bridge, not realizing doing so would affect the mood of people in the area :)

Now that's the connection I was looking for all these years. I used to do folk singing before in joints and I play a lot of Simon and Garfunkle, including this song. Thanks for the explanation. Owe you one :)

I didnt now that till you asked and i did some research so I owe you one :)

Well that's one mystery solved Inspector. Till the next one lol.

👍🙂👍

Beautiful bridge awesome photographs my friend..

❤️Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

hello very nice the one I like the most is the one under the bridge in sepia

Thnaks I was so happy with how that came out and wasn’t sure what people would think of it
