A 122nd Anniversary Takes Place today!


Besides this being Plush Animal Lover's Day, today marks the one hundred and twenty-second anniversary of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty. According to a Wikipedia page, the statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886.

The image atop this post features a driftwood sculpture of her that can be found near to Long Beach's Boardwalk (on Long Island in NY).

I've featured this image in prior posts here on Blogger and while I don't like to repeat content, an anniversary of one hundred and twenty two years is bound to have something repetitive.

Besides, I like this driftwood sculpture and look for it whenever I travel to Long Beach to visit the awesome shorebirds who  can be found there (including American Oystercatchers, Herring Gulls, Laughing Gulls, Ring-billed Gulls and Sandpipers).

American Oystercatchers are featured in volume two of Words In Our Beak, and Lady Liberty who can be seen standing in NYC's harbor in the next two picture (respectively) from the vantage point of Red Hook in Brooklyn and Ellis Island), is referenced in volume three of the book series.*



May Lady Liberty enjoy more anniversaries and may all people remember — especially in these volatile times — what she stands for.

FALL 2018 ADDENDUM: 

Hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.



Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books.

Additionally,  I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
