Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    Fabulous image, it was a windy day when we were in the City so I wouldn’t go on the Ferry across, I am not good on water and the ferry was sooooo full of people too that I just couldn’t do the trip,

  • This was taken from the Staten Island Ferry. The best cheap date in America! (it’s free!) The boats to the statue itself are always jammed full and have crazy long lines and wait times to buy tickets. Glad you like this image and thanks you for the great comment Ann. Cheers.

    There’s the girl…excellent capture and treatment :-)

  • Thank you, It’s hard to do something a little different for this classic scene. Must be the most photographed object in the States. Glad you like it. Cheers.
