Photographer's Note

there are all kinds of freaks. I am a tilt freak, for example, and not ashamed to admit that. I do realise it's a matter of personal taste though. in this particular case the titled buildings of the South Manhattan near the Battery park symbolise - for me, that is - a learning curve, and a sad fact that the tittle bump right in the middle of the curve has halted all my progress and is a constant source of frustration in the otherwise enjoyable process of learning about the photography and using Treakearth.

Battery Park is a 25 acre (10 hectare) public park located at the southern tip of Manhattan, facing New York Harbor. the Battery is named for the artillery battery that was stationed there at various times by the Dutch and British in order to protect the harbor; the place also was a popular promenade since at least the 17th century. moreover, the Battery was the center of Evacuation Day celebrations commemorating the departure of the last British troops in the United States after the American Revolutionary War.
