Liberty in Paris

Liberty in Paris
  While on assignment in Paris this week I found myself wandering through the Jardin du Luxembourg in the 6th Arrondissement. I was immediately drawn to a giant tree bursting with autumn colors and surrounded by trees in the rest of this glorious park already bare for winter. I then discovered a small version of Fréderéric Bartholdi‘s Statue of Liberty and learned that this bronze statue was designed before the larger version was created for New York. This statue has been in the Jardin du Luxembourg since 1906 and yet this is the first time I ever noticed it! May we all cherish our freedom and liberty. Want to know more?
