Statue of Liberty from Ellis Island

Click to see ‘Statue of Liberty from Ellis Island’ in a variety of different sizesOne thing that strikes you about New York is how familiar it feels; there’s nothing remotely foreign about the place. New York feels a lot like home and you kick yourself for taking so long to visit.

The downside to that is — skyscrapers aside perhaps — it doesn’t strike you in awe… until you visit the Statue of Liberty, here pictured from a ferry docked at Ellis Island. She doesn’t seem as big as she should be and she’s not as solid as she seems. But she’s lost none of her symbolism.
