This bronze statue by Kantilal P. Patel (b. 1925) was installed in 1986 in the southwest corner of Union Square Park.

Using my Canon G7

It was a hot and humid day, in the high 80s, when I met Annamarie. Before noon she was ready to call it a day. A talented artist, you can see more of her work at


  1. Very nice monochrome choice.

  2. A fascinating subject. I'm intrigued by the round 'easel'. Is this a hallmark of this artist?

  3. I am surprised the artist wasn't wearing a straw hat in that sunlight. Well observed.
    I wonder what Ghandi would make of the city?

  4. Nice capture. She looks very peaceful in her surroundings doing what she loves best.

  5. Excellent random stranger photo/post!

  6. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

About Me

My photo
JANUS - looking backwards and forwards is a Janus trait - for me a way to record the "in between thought", whether in retrospect, or as a notion for the future. I make original prints, currently etchings. I sometimes write and take photographs. I am inspired by what I see and read. Although postings are chronologically recorded by date and time in this protocol, the images exhibited, often seen in different stages of production, are from another time. So, with each new posting, earlier postings can undergo revision or amplification as will be noted, or requested. The addition of a SNAPSHOTS Blog and a VIRGINIA WOOLF Blog are included because my different interests tend to influence what I do as an artist. There will be a Family Blog, too, for the same reason.
