I dunno about the rest of you, but yesterday really kinda did me in. The non-stop media barrage of 9/11 remembrances and videos brought everything back in all too lurid detail. It drove me down into the basement and I emerged with a couple of photographs I took back in 1984…up on the observation deck of the World Trade Center. I would much rather remember what it was like the day I took these shots…

  1. Leading up to 9/11 I just looked for images from all over of the twin towers before the terrorist attacks from professional to amateur as well as my own. It was fun reading peoples memories of seeing them as tourists or locals. These are so interesting.
    I did not watch any of the memorials because I can remember so vividly that day, the reality of the people trapped in the building talking to news crews, the dutch documentary crew who followed a fire station crew, all of it in greater detail than I care to think about. As I went about my day editing an engagement session, images of a newborn, a personal project, I thought about the families so personally affected and how I can live my life in a more positive way because life goes by so quickly, doesn’t it.

  2. Thanks for the “inspiring” pics from the top of the world… I’m sure all those who made the ultimate sacrifice that day would like the beauty to be remembered as well!!!!

  3. Just today I saw this quote and it so fits the above images…

    “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliott Erwitt
