    very poignant…Shots of Ground Zero always are cause for contemplation…here is the result of mine:
    It amazes me that almost 10 years have passed and yet so little seems to have been done on the site…It’s like an open wound on the island of Manhattan that refuses to heal. I personally think they should build NOTHING on the site, but turn the whole area into a park and just have those two beams of blue light pointing skyward, showing where the towers were. Suck a poignant, beautiful and fitting memorial. Whatever else they build will be ‘jinxed’ and no-one will want to work in it and it has to be said, it would provide Al Qaeda with the perfect target and so it all happens again….madness… I got the opportunity to visit the WTC in the early 90’s and I still have the pix I took from the observation level in the North tower. I can’t look at them now without thinking of ‘the jumpers’. It was an amazing complex, but it’s gone and America should move on and not provide the forces of evil with yet another opportunity to bring despair to America and the whole world. You can’t really destroy 2 beams of light and even if you manage to, it’s only light…just my opinion…

  • thanks owen.. and yes.. i have to agree with you…i think the 2 blue beams of light each night would be such a moving and ‘spiritual’ tribute – and a parkland memorial by day – i was so surprised to see all work still at ground level almost 10 years later – i appreciate the vastness and depth of the area to recover – but one of the workers told us there is so much local back-biting and political red tape, forward movement is very slow indeed – the horrendous images of those who jumped as well as the entire catastrophic scenes and events as they unfolded will live with me forever too – even so far removed on the other side of the world down under ♥

    how you going with your D90? ….any progress from auto yet!! LOL…not much ‘forward movement’ thru my instruction booklet yet either… heh – i live in hope

    Thanks. I’m glad you agree. The sad fact is, the reason they are building on it is because the land is worth a fortune and those who own it wouldn’t make any money from a park. Business rules, especially in NYC.
    Still haven’t moved on from Auto with the D90 but now have a kickass Nikorr macro lens which is a lot of fun to use. I just don’t have a lot of time to devote to learning about it at the moment.
