Statue de la Liberté


This smaller version of Liberty Enlightening the World, Lady Liberty, located on the Île aux Cygnes was erected on 4 July, 1889 four years after the original statue was given to the United States. She faces west toward the New York. It was given by the Parisian community in America to commemorate the centennial of the French Revolution. I took this photo in 2009 on 14 juilliet, Bastille Day in Paris. A night I will never forget.
