Women Sitting against the Taffrail with the Statue of Liberty and Flags - New York Harbor, New York
In late afternoon sunlight, a couple sits on the transom of a sailboat in New York Harbor. The Statue of Liberty is centered in the photograph with two flags waving in the wind. One woman sits, posing like a statue while the other leans against the pushpit, relaxed and with her feet up. The couple participates in the interaction of the national symbols as revolutionaries by choices of their own existence. The great symbol of Liberty Enlightening the World is seen between the staff of the nautical flag and backstay, framing it in its own triangular composition. This separates the flags across the frame, while pulling the subjects together in a conceptual unity.
