A Bergen Moment

"On a warm and sunny Sunday, I took a bike ride to the Englewood picnic area at the Palisades Interstate Park. Many families were enjoying the pleasant day, having a Mother’s Day picnic. Because I am particularly interested in photographing bridges, I took this image of children playing in a brook near the Park Drive Bridge. I especially liked the girl with her festive dress!”
—Mario Burger, Edgewater, flickr.com/photos/jag9889
