Lady Liberty

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

The first time I saw the lady liberty, it struck me how small she is. It sort of amazes me, in a way: at one time, this was an awe-inspiring, huge structure that stood out from everything around it. Now, it’s just a dot in the water, obscured by buildings and construction. Even in the aftermath of 9/11 and the gaping hole in Manhattan, it’s size is diminished by the huge everything in NYC.

Pardon the poor quality.  It’s a snapshot from a cruise ship that was in motion.  This just seemed somewhat fitting for the 10th anniversary weekend of the disaster in NYC.
