Trees in Manhattan
This is leftover from last week in Manhattan. I was walking from the heliport to a subway stop to get back uptown, and I looked up this stairway and saw a familiar sculpture, but from an unfamiliar angle. This piece is Jean Dubuffet's "Group of Four Trees", in front of the Chase Manhattan Bank Plaza. I have photographed this sculpture before, and honestly, this is not the best view of it. This photo is more about the relationship of the sculpture to its surroundings - the buildings are more important than the sculpture, in my opinion. Whichever is most important, the two objects together make a dramatic view.
