It is a tourist snapshot because it is technically illegal to take photos of this site. We had just been warned by one undercover policeman. When he was out of sight, we began shooting again, ableit, quickly. Thanks for your comment. GJ

he subject itself is intruiging, and an apt commentary for our times. Oddly enough, you will find similar work here in San Francisco. I only wish you had handled the picture a tad differently. As is, it just looks like a tourist's snapshot.

"The Iranians' seizure of the embassy and subsequent holding of hostages caused havoc in the Carter Administration."......about as much havoc as our operation of removing their premier in '53 and replacing him with the Shah caused Iran, I would say. Anyway, interesting picture, GJ. Liberty sure does not look as welcoming here as she does in the harbour of New York. B ;)
