I left Paris without the shots of the Statue of Liberty I wanted. My idea was to photograph the Statue of Liberty replicas in Paris for a travel article I could pitch to magazines and newspapers to run around the 4th of July holiday.  But alas, traveling with an 8-month-old introduces challenges I’m not always prepared for.  It was too cold and rainy to drag her across the city for the photos so I’m home now, empty handed. This did, however, give me another idea for a travel piece I might try to pitch if I can get it done in time.  And I’d like you to help. Statue of Liberty replicas stand all across the U.S. and Europe.  Not just France and New York. Perhaps we can tackle a much bigger assignment together. If you live near (or are traveling to) any of these locations in the next two weeks, let’s work together to create a photo essay we can pitch to magazines and newspapers… Statue of Liberty replicas: FRANCE * Paris * Bordeaux * Barentin * Colmar * Poitiers * Lunel * Lyon USA * Duluth, MN * Las Vegas, NV (2 replicas) * Sioux Falls, SD * Birmingham, AL * Buffalo, NY * North of Harrisburg, PA * Carlsbad, CA (in Legoland) * San Marcos, CA * Memphis, TN * Tahlequah, Oklahoma * Lebanon, Tennessee * Fargo, North Dakota * Topeka, Kansas * Webster, Massachusetts * Seattle, Washington * Sioux City, Iowa * Orlando, Florida * Dalton, Georgia * Medford, Oregon ARGENTINA * Buenos Aires BRAZIL * Barra da Tijuca neighborhood, Rio de Janeiro * Maceio * Curitaba ECUADOR * Guayaquil PERU * Lima AUSTRIA * Carinthia (at the Minimundus Park) GERMANY * Soltau (at Heide-Park) DENMARK * Billund (in Legoland) KOSOVO * Pristina NORWAY * Visnes SPAIN * Cenicero UKRAINE * Lviv UNITED KINGDOM * Leicester * Warrington * LAF Lakenheath (Air Force Station) ISRAEL * Arraba * Jerusalem JAPAN * Tokyo * Osaka * Shimoda PHILIPPINES * Camp John Hay TAIWAN * Keelung * Taipei AUSTRALIA * Adelaide Staff writer, Bonnie Caton is still in Paris so I sent her out on my behalf to photograph the Statue of Liberty replicas there.  Here are the photos she sent me: Flame of Liberty on the Pont de l’Alma Statue of Liberty ReplicaStatue of Liberty at the Pont de Grenelle Statue of Liberty in the Jardin de Luxembourg Statue of Liberty inside the Musée des Arts et Metiers If you can do the same (remember what you’ve been learning in this newsletter about creating a magazine-quality photograph — Rule of Thirds, leading lines, Framing), please email me at and let me know which statues you can photograph and when you think you’ll be able to send in the pictures.  I’ll take care of contacting magazines and newspapers if we get enough responses.
