The Statue of Liberty, Liberty Island, New York, USA, June 2009

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

    still very enlightening image! great angle.

  • It’s funny, when we were in New York, it was cloudy. But when we hopped on the ferry, suddenly the clouds broke and blue sky & sun shone through :) Certainly a touching moment.
