Lower Manhattan is best seen from the waters of New York Harbour. In 1956 a dime (10a) bought a remarkable value-for-money ferry trip from the Battery to Staten Island à The picture shows a quiet moment reflecting my belief that photojournalism's responsibility is to cover the simple things of life as well as extraordinary events.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
