September 11: 9/11

Tribute of lights

9/11/2011. Ten years. A retrospective. After ten years, there is still a profound sense of sadness and loss. It is the defining moment of this generation. My moment was the assassination of John F Kennedy in 1963. Looking back at the photos from 2001 is still hard. The tribute in lights has so far been done each year on the anniversary. In 2004, I was at the site at night and photographed the tribute. Birds attracted to the light circled in the beams slowly spiraling. It made me think of lost souls ascending to heaven. The gallery contains photos from 2001 and updated on the tenth anniversary 2011. I debated a while before this posting. It still evokes deep emotions.
