Statue of Liberty- Alki Beach- Black and white # 33

Susan Nolen's Statue of Liberty


One of the fabulous things about living near the beach is you never know what’s going to happen. During a recent storm the water came up above the seawall! Ted and I had to make a run for it. Here’s Black and White, Number 33- the Statue of Liberty at Alki Beach in Seattle.

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    what a beautiful shot Susan – I like the splash to the right – and you can feel the two of you moving away…

    also, speaking of Ted – I am going to be back later this month to give you my review of “Ted’s Day Out” – I got a little behind on my reading, but am getting caught up now.
    have a great day 🙂

  2. Thanks Prior! Ted likes to walk close to the shore line, but on that day, the entire walking path was underwater! He would have loved it…me? No way! I so hope you enjoy my little Ted Story. I should write up the back story to it. It has a special place in my heart. It was the last bit of writing my Dad got to read before he passed away. All good memories! Ted of course thinks…well if this conversation isn’t about him, then let’s move on! 🙂

    Great photo, Susan. I didn’t know there was a Statue of Liberty in Seattle…

    • Hi Tom. Thanks! There is a small version of the big girl on Seattle’s only beach. The early settlers were planning to create a west coast version of New York City but the winter was too rough. They left Alki Beach after that first winter to settle in the Pioneer Square area of downtown. I was very surprised to find Ms Liberty gazing out towards the water!

  4. That just makes me miss living in West Seattle. Love the picture.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
