(Insert Striking Photograph Here)

As I near home every night, the F train comes above ground for two stops, and at some point during that gulp for fresh air it provides a pretty decent view of the Statue of Liberty outside its west-side windows. Tonight, the sun -- about 30 minutes prior to setting -- was in one of those phases (probably due to pollution, sure) when it's Crayola-orange and its outline is perfectly defined and it's easy to stare at without going blind or even squinting. Stunning on its own, and even more so for the few moments when it was aligned over the Statue. The point is, if I owned a digital camera, I could be sharing the image with you right now.

Note to self: Buy a camera.
