Statue of Liberty

My wife and I made promises to do certain things with the kids over the summer. During August, I decided to take a day off each week – alternating Wednesday’s and Thursday’s – to complete the checklist. Among them was a trip to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. The kids and I have been to Ellis Island on school trips – I chaperoned my daughter’s class – but my wife had been to neither. It was raining in Skillman, NJ but we hoped the weather in Jersey City would be better. It rained the entire boat ride to and from Ellis Island. Our tour included a stop at Liberty Island but the heavy rain kept us on the boat.

Imagine what it was like to see this statue for the first after spending months inside the cargo area or cabin of a ship?

This image was captured on the boat ride back from Liberty Island to Jersey City. It’s a single image “fake HDR” processed in Nik Software’s HDR Efex Pro.
