Every September 11th New York City remembers those lost in the attacks on New York with a tribute in lights. The tribute is composed of two vertical columns of light made up by a total of 88 individual spot lights. They are placed in the New York City skyline where the two World Trade Center towers stood 15 years ago. It is said these columns of light can be seen from space.
As I sat on the rocks of the shore line taking these pictures I couldn’t help but enjoy the quiet. Just my camera and I and a cool breeze coming off the water. The weather was perfect. As I enjoyed the quiet I remembered that night 15 years ago. The thing that struck me most about that night was the quiet. No cars, no planes, no trains. No people going from here to there. Just the sad quiet as a nation mourned.
