Default Point A to Point B- Looking across at the New World

This may be a stretch but, this is what I think the immigrants waiting to be processed at Ellis Island (pointA) must have seen and felt, looking through their eyes at the New York skyline and a whole new world (pointB) in full color across the Hudson.

I like your interpretation Zig - and the pic as well. This, too, is a journey.

Cheers

Bernice

I really like the interpretation. For those folks though, it may have felt more like point Y to point Z. Great picture and thought provoking interpretation. Thanks.

Beautiful interpretation. Hopefully it was a view full of hope.

Thank you all for the kind comments.

And, I have to confess that it is a little personal for me as I was at Ellis Island with my parents going through the process. We emigrated from Belgium, where my dad was a coal miner. Knowing that coal mining was not a safe and healthy career he wanted to come to the US very badly. I was only 5 at the time, so don't remember anything but being seasick during the entire voyage across the Atlantic.

A perfect cover for your autobiography, Zig. Now you just have to write it.

Hi Walter,

Thanks for the suggestion. Trouble is it would be much too short a story and altogether too boring.

If you fill your autobiography with such neat pictures, so full of meaning, the words won't matter.

Hi Mtngal,

That's about the nicest response I've ever received here on Steve's.
Thank you.

Zig
