One of the places in New York City that I felt was a great romantic fall location was the magnificent Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island.
To go to New York City for just 5 or 6 days, it is clearly impossible to see everything. One of the things I was most excited about was getting the ferry over to Liberty Island and climbing up to the pedestal level of the Statue. Even on the way over to the island, the Statue stands tall and beautiful in the glorious autumn sunshine. Recently, due to the threats posed by terrorists, it has not been possible to visit the Statue, so I felt very privileged to be able to pay a visit. Unfortunately, we were unable to go all the way up to the crown level because it was fully booked for three months but the pedestal was enough for me and the view was spectacular even from there.
Once you are on the island, it is a pretty slick operation to get people up to the pedestal (either by stairs or elevator) and I was impressed that they didn’t allow it to get too packed up, so it was really possible to enjoy the great views across the waters of Manhattan.
This is a really lovely place to visit, and has a very romantic and relaxed feel to it, which I was not expecting at all. You can just have a leisurely walk around the Statue at the bottom as well which is really nice and gives some great photo opportunities. Autumn is the perfect season for this, as it is not too hot, or too busy but the glorious sunshine lights up the Statue beautifully.

The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!

In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.
