New York Freedom ...


“We will not waver; we will not tire; we will not falter, and we will not fail. Peace and Freedom will prevail.”
           ~ George W. Bush
                 ~ born 1946
  ~ 43rd President of the United States of America
                      ~ 2001-2009

Splashes of morning light on a perfect April day shine on One World Trade Center – The Freedom Tower – and the new Oculus sculpture that tops the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in Lower Manhattan, New York City, near the Memorial Pools.

One World Trade Center is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex. With 104 floors, it is the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere and the fourth tallest in the world. It opened November 3, 2014.

The Oculus sculpture – bringing to mind the bold, rising wings of freedom – is the creation of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.

Red Steppin' ...



“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
                    ~ Elliott Erwitt

When I saw the bright pop of red on this fire escape on a late October afternoon in downtown Easton, Pennsylvania, I knew I had to capture it in a photograph!
