Verrazano bridge.

Looking at Verrazano bridge through the trees. I pass that place hundred times and often stare at this beauty against the sky, and it seems that wind plays music on its strings like on gigantic harp.
Verrazano connects Brooklyn and Staten Island, where we have to take another bridge North through Goethals and South through Outerbridge,  it is our way to New Jersey, unless we want to go through Manhattan and take George Washington bridge. To cross Verrazano going North cost $13 bucks, 2 Chinese meals ripped from my mouth. (I measure bridge toll by food).
 I used ink and bits of watercolor from my tiny Bijou box.
 I bought plastic Yamamoto palette on my last trip to art supply store in the City, but didn't get the chance to use it yet, it will probably get stained, cheap plastic, but I don't care, I was looking for something small and light, to fit in my small rucksack.

Trees and water always comprise my favorite landscapes, Nikira. The beautiful bridge is an added bonus. I am studying your trees; they are exquisite!

Thank you, CrimsonLeaves, for your kind words, you are such wonderful supporter. I am trying to find interesting moments for you. I love trees and keep admiring their unique bodies and shapes, they look like dancers to me or prayers. :-)
