Atlas

As a kid I was fascinated with Mythology- Olympians, Titans… big time battles… The Gods raging on high, great stuff for a young mind.

Across the street from Saint Patrick’s is this statue of Atlas. It’s HUGE and it stands squarely in front of  Rockefeller Center. Atlas was condemned by Zeus to hold the heavenly sphere upon his shoulders for all time…  he must have been a really BAD Titan for that punishment… nowadays its you lose your Club Penguin, or iPod touch for a few hours… Sheesh.

Anyway, when I was many years younger I remember walking past this statue and just being in awe of it. So having the opportunity to shoot it at 40 was pretty neat.

Enjoy!
