52 Photos Project

Prompt for Week 6: light in the dark

My ancestors were already here a couple of centuries
before this lady graced the New York harbor,
but my kids' paternal ancestors were greeted by her
when they arrived from Sicily in the early 20th century.
I decided on this shot (taken from a dinner cruise
around the harbor) because it seems to fit this
week's brief both literally and figuratively.
