Lady Liberty

The fourth collection from my trip to New York is of course the Statue Of Liberty.

"Business" is booming!

Another month has passed, this year is flying! I can't believe it's August already. I had a relatively quiet month in June because May was so full on but July saw me back hard at it. I've previously mentioned that that I had put up a profile on a site called "Purpleport" (I have no idea why it's called that!) it allows us 'creative' types to network, it has a mixture of models, photographers, makeup artists and graphic artists.

Brooklyn Bridge 4

Brooklyn Bridge 3

This was taken from about Halfway across the bridge, the sun is out of shot behind the financial district
