LIBERTY IN DARKNESS

BYRON

AUGUSTINE HEIGHTS, Australia

Artist's Description

It was a lousy day. Cold and wet, and I didn’t get any sleep last night because of all the fire alarms. Why did it have to rain on my only day in NYC. Did I mention the smog? – Flat green and urcky; the very colour of 2 week old pea & ham soup that has been left out in the sun. The light was dull and lifeless.

To make matters worse I am on the top deck of the Ferry and its rocking back and forth, back and forth, I really wanna sit down now, but its my only chance to see THE statue.

Damn, why wont the Ferry get closer? Now I have to change to my long lens while its raining and there is salty sea-spray in the air. Crank the polariser and turn on image stabilisation. 3, 2, 1 fire…. shooting in multiframe I run off about 200 boring colourless frames of crap. Maybe I can get something out of them in post-production.

When you have lemons, you really should make lemonade!

This is my lemonade. I hope you enjoy it!
