Lady Liberty

Christmas 2010 was pretty special.  Not only did I get to experience my first EVER white Christmas, but I also got to spend it with some amazing friends from back home and together we traveled to New York and enjoyed the sights around Manhattan.  I have to admit. It’s pretty hard not to fall in love with this city.. so to help you do so, I thought that I might change it up a bit and create a photo essay rather than write a million words.. so here goes.. I hope you fall in LOVE too!

The neon lit Times Square – where everything happens

New York had received a large dump of snow just days before we arrived which practically shut down parts of the city… This Corner of Central Park is still covered in the left over snow

RSVP for June 18th : Your Art in Times Square

A little while ago in Artistswanted… a challenge i choose to accept, I announced that I had put myself out there and entered the Artistwanted – Art Takes Time Square photography competition and in turn opened myself up to a whole world (outside of my little bubble) to see.

And it has paid off!!..

On June 4th I received the following email:

Congratulations Janine!

As an Art Takes Times Square premium entrant, your work will be displayed during the upcoming Art Takes Times Square billboard premiere event!

Art Takes Times Square scoured the globe for today’s greatest creative talents to identify one artist whose work will be displayed in a massive exhibition on the glittering screens of Times Square. Tens of thousands of artists joined this international phenomenon, contributing works that received over 2 million page views through the course of the competition.

On Monday June 18th, thousands of artists (including YOU) will be featured and one Grand Prize winner will be revealed at the Art Takes Times Square billboard premiere.

Now unfortuantly I won’t be in Times Square on Monday evening to totally celebrate this occassion (and trust me.. I am still trying), but I am simply thrilled to be a part of such an amazing event… so to those that viewed and voted, THANK YOU.. and fingers crossed.. who knows where a Janine McLean photograph will pop up next!
