Cicadas. Rhinebeck, NY 2013
Germany - don’t remember the town. Could be Rastatt.
I liked the angular tone and the colours and it just seemed very teutonic with all the squares and angles.
Statue of Liberty from a different angle, which gives the impression of an over-arching protectionism. Sky was extraordinarily clear that day.
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!”
Canadian Parliament buildings, Ottawa, Ontario - Canada. Ottawa is a wonderful place to visit summer or winter (there’s a canal in Ottawa that they have a winter carnival on when it freezes and you can skate for miles). Minutes from Hull, Quebec it is “picturesque”
