La Liberté éclairant le monde
Designed by Frédéric Bartholdi and dedicated on October 28, 1886, the statue, a gift to the United States from the people of France, is of a robed Roman goddess, who bears a torch and a tablet evoking the law (tabula ansata) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.
Today, the most known landmark of New York is something a photographer must capture if he would to capture New York.
This image was shot at Brooklyn Heights, perhaps not the best location to capture the statue, and it was late into date and instead of avoiding busy air traffic, I made them into a picture together.
