Paul Revere

I've just spent a few very nice days in Boston, and since I've got no New York photos to show you right now, I'm just going to show a few from there. Here is the famous statue of Paul Revere heading out on his "midnight ride" to warn about the advancing British soldiers in the revolutionary war. Wikipedia says, "The role for which Revere is most remembered today was as a night-time messenger on horseback just before the battles of Lexington and Concord. His famous "Midnight Ride" occurred on the night of April 18/April 19, 1775, when he was instructed to ride from Boston to Lexington to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams of the movements of the British Army. This statue is in front of the Old North Church in Boston's North End.

Your photo has unleashed all of the stored energy the original sculptor willed into his work. Well done!
