Sharing a Bench with Public Art, on Broadway

Making up, uws Photo by myself on Broadway and 61st Street, on the Upper West Side.

A woman applied lipstick while seated on a bench next to a realistic bronze statue, on the Upper West Side.

The statue depicts Jeremiah Lanphier, a businessman who advocated daily prayer to New Yorkers in the mid-19th Century. The statue was created by Lincoln Fox in 2007 and stands outside the American Bible Society (out of frame, to the left).

This seems to be a trend in sculpture - I've seen a few like that. They work!

Who would have thought that such a natural, daily occurrence would make such an interesting photo. Very nice.
