As I positioned my tripod on the concrete, I reflected on the indescribable beauty before me.
The dawn was breaking behind me, as the night was surrendering to the day!
I stood looking at the the Statue of Liberty illuminated in the night sky with intense light, a beautiful sight!
Whilst my thoughts extended to the immigrants during the early years arriving with very little, but possessing an abundance of hope and faith!
Can you imagine the excitement they must have felt, arriving in a new country?!
What an incredible sight as I witnessed Manhattan before me, slip from night into day.
So often we take freedom for granted don’t we? But, it comes at a price! Sometimes, paid before our time!
The image expresses my fascination and passion for New York and New Yorkers!
