15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
USS Maine National Monument, NYC

I walked more than 60 blocks in Manhattan on that day, looking for monuments and statues that could be photographed from ominous angles, enhanced by the grey weather. The monument to the USS Maine is close to Columbus Circle, but it's easier to get close to it, even to photograph sitting birds on the statue, as I did.
