Photographer's Note

This is it - the Statue, and I am in its crown (taking this picture)!!!

The Statue of Liberty's shadow on the Liberty Island in New York.

It took about 3 hours to get there on the narrow spiral staircase, it was also scary, but my friends and I were happy that we made it!

Now, when I see the Statue, I always think: I was there, right in its crown, and it makes me proud of myself! :) It was a really exciting experience.

This experience is even more valuable at this time, because the access is restricted now, as far as I know, because of the recent, very sad, events in New York City. I hope everything comes to norm soon!


P.S. On November 12, 2005: I created a workshop, improving my own photo. I cropped it a little on the right, saturated the colors and added a bit of sharpness. Please let me know what you think, was it an improvement or not really?.. :)

Thanks, I appreciate your opinion!
Irina, the Traveller.
