    This looks best when viewed larger. Great shot. I’d also like to see it in a b/w version. Amazingly, the cellophane around the bouquet of flowers in the foreground, look just like angel wings to me!

  • Thank you…. and I agree about the larger version and I’ll try it in B/W and see how it turns out….great idea!

    This reminder still makes my heart stop. What a horrific day. Now I’ll cry…. again…… hate what others will do to others……
    But this is a wonderful image and I do thank you for showing us your talent!!!!
    A reminder is not always bad…… we need to remember….
    Warm regards,

  • Thank for your obvious heartfelt comment. It is warming to know that my image was able to stir the emotion I was trying to capture. -Although the true magnitude of emotion felt at the site and brought on by this tragedy could not be captured through my lens.

    Thank you. The horrid reality is softened somewhat with the knowledge of how much we all came together on that fateful day. God Bless America.

    Great shot!

  • Yes…God Bless America!
