On our recent trip to New York, like all tourists do, we jumped on the ferry to take us out to the Statue of Liberty.
It wasn’t the best day for pictures; a hazy and low cloud cover made everything gloomy and grey. Wanting to pack light, I had only an old 35-105 mm lens to work with. Since I have been to the statue before and since we didn’t have any special access to the statue itself — we were constrained to walking her perimeter and staring upward — I tried to look for angles or ways of taking pictures of the Lady that wouldn’t necessarily fall into the category of “tourist snapshot.”
So, this is what I came up with, hopefully they are beyond the obligatory “here’s the picture we took of the statue” realm.
Leave a comment on what you think. Did I meet my goal?
