Statue of Liberty, July 3, 1976

We join in celebrating the Nation's birthday, and wish all our friends a very Happy Fourth of July. We also join in celebrating the re-opening of the Statue of Liberty, with a nice slide show here ; with a comparison to Margaret Bourke-White's two iconic views here and here.
Here in Santa Fe, the annual Pancakes on the Plaza is in full swing, with thousands out for a hearty community breakfast in a beautiful open air setting (follow on the Santa Fe Plaza Webcam).
And we welcome you to visit Monroe Gallery to view the just-opened exhibition, "A Thousand Words: Masters of Photojournalism".
Our best,
Sid and Michelle Monroe
