This story really saddened me. They showed some of the guys pictures on the local news here and they looked very good.

Nab Finest in DWI Bridge Horror

A drunken off-duty cop struck and killed a photographer taking pictures on the Queensboro Bridge early yesterday - after swerving around a dump truck, several barrels and traffic cones to get onto a closed section of the span, sources said.

Housing cop Brandon Colon, 30, slammed his SUV into Julio Alberto Ortega-Moncada at 3:40 a.m. while the Queens artist walked along the outer roadway taking pictures of the skyline, sources said.

This was a thought in my mind yesterday as I took photos from a bridge. I was shooting photos for a magazine article that required pictures of a scuba diving site on the New River. All of the pictures I have seen of the site are from the ground level. So I figured why not shoot from the bridge.

Traffic is pretty bad on the bridge as it is a 4 lane road reduced to 2 on one bridge as the second bridge is condemned. I saw several cars drift over the white line to see if they could scare me. Jerks.

I figured I would either get run over or the cops would be called for me taking pictures while I was under the bridge shooting.

The key is to stay safe and remember not to keep your eye in the viewfinder.
