Blue Pink

Sounds like Rousseau would've liked the pink.

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Emma Lazarus, 1883

Liberty Enlightening the World (French: La liberté éclairant le monde), known more commonly as the Statue of Liberty, is a colossal statue given to the United States by France in 1886, standing at Liberty Island, in the mouth of the Hudson River in New York Harbor as a welcome to all visitors, immigrants, and returning Americans. Thanks, France.

"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety"
- Benjamin Franklin


liberty

The hundred and twenty year old lady, dressed in a robe and a seven point spiked crown representing the Seven Seas, holding a stone tablet close to her body in her left hand and a flaming torch high in her right hand. The statue is made of pure copper on a framework of steel (originally puddled iron) with the exception of the flame of the torch, which is coated in gold leaf. What a fine lookin' lady.

Liberty is a concept of political philosophy and identifies the condition in which an individual has the ability to act according to his or her own will. Go for it.


camera

The first color photograph was made by James Clerk Maxwell, with the help of Thomas Sutton, in 1861. I painted this painting all by myself!


camera two

The camera, a device used to capture images, as still photographs or as sequences of moving images... The term (as well as the modern-day camera) evolved from the camera obscura, Latin for "dark chamber", an early mechanism for projecting images, in which an entire room functioned as a real-time imaging system. Cool.


olives

The olive is one of the earliest plants cited in recorded literature. Mentioned by Homer in the Odyssey, Horace and Lord Monboddo as one of the most perfect foods. Looks good in a martini glass.


fruit

The term "fruit cocktail" was first used in print in the New York Hotel Review for 1922.Culinary evidence confirms that sometimes fruit salad was mixed with sugar and alcohol, thus the term "fruit cocktail." Whooo hoo!
