and the Williamsburg Bridge in the distance
Our second stop was the view of the bridge from the corner of Water and Washington Streets. As we setup to sketch on the narrow side walks passing people stayed to watch and look at the view. There were 25 Urban Sketchers and soon there was an equal number of tourists taking photos of us and the incredible view. Then a photographer and model setup 20 feet from us to do a shoot. The tourists photographed that too. It was quite an event.
At lunch I drew a quick picture of Jan Finlayson who was visiting us from Adelaide, Australia. It's so great meeting Urban Sketcher from around the world, - complete strangers who share a passion. We all enjoyed her company.
At the end of the day the remaining sketchers gathered to share drawings and pose for this photo in front of the carousel.
After, about ten of us went to a bar nearby to continue talking and sketching.
