This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

Whenever I find an old statue of a famous person I capture it for stock.  These two statues of George Washington are part of the arch that is in Washington Square, New York.

Both photos were taken with the Leica M9 and 50mm lens on one of the many walks I take around the city.  I always have a camera with me, and almost always pick up a stock shot or two.


  1. hi Tom,

    these kind of shots don't require a Property Release ?

  2. Jan, you will notice in the caption I said "old statue". This statue is long out of copyright and is a public building in the public domain. You do have to be careful with new statues, that is those that are still within their copyright age range. Photographing this arch is similar to photographing the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.
