Two replicas of the Statue of Liberty are found in Paris, France. One stands in the Jardin du Luxembourg.

Patrick T. Power, San Francisco, California Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement My photographs tend to reflect no real tendencies other than that I shoot what happens to catch my eye at any given moment. It might be something very commonplace and mundane; it might be something grand; it might be something I've found grand existing in the mundane.
Recently, I have discovered the rather lo-fi beauty of through-the-viewfinder (TTV) photography.
I also like to shoot panoramic photographs, most of the time without the aid of a tripod, and often of scenes one might not consider "scenic." I like the uneven shapes created by my hand-held technique (or lack of technique, you might say), though when I can, I include in my galleries versions that have been cropped to rectilinear.
Since moving to San Francisco a little over a year ago, I have become interested again in shooting film, and—if quality allows—I will upload some of those photos here.
