Photo Friday (Blogging For Scrapbookers Prompt 9)

Inspired by Shimelle, I have decided to make 'Photo Friday' my new regular feature. This means that every friday I will post a photo, usually one of my own, I will clearly label if it's an image that I love from Flickr etc. There will be journaling with it. Sometimes a lot, sometimes just a few words, depending on the photo.

This particular photo i'm proud to say is one of my own. I'm not great at photography generally, although I do understand a few of the framing techniques, and I think this is probably the best photograph i've ever taken, I just love the angle and the colours.
Obviously this is the Statue Of Liberty, I didn't need to tell you that. What you wouldn't know is that this was taken in February! No I haven't altered the image in anyway, the blue sky was really there. It was one of those perfect winter days, cold but sunny with clear skies. Hubby and I went to New York for Honeymoon this february and spent a lovely day on Liberty island, although it took a while to get through all the security checks, it was like the airport again. We had such a laugh posing for photos, imitating the Statue's pose. We didn't go up inside, nowadays you can only go to the top of the base anyway so we didn't think it was worth it. I think this was probably one of my favourite days out in Manhatten, well other than finding what is apparently the only scrapbooking shop in the city which was the Portrait Bug, I love that shop, soo my taste in products. I would definitely love to go back again with hubby, maybe i'll be able to persuade him to take me again for an anniversary.
