I visited the 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero for the first time on Friday. I say the first time because I plan on returning to photograph it, when the lights come on and the names of those who lost their lives on 9/11/2001 are illuminated. Hopefully next time it won't rain. On the other hand, the rain helps us focus on the feelings we have when visiting such places, such memorials. So, I guess the rain did help.

And, indeed, the rain adds a dramatic element, in general. In this case, at the 9/11 memorial, the rain only had to highlight this element.

The two footprints of the Twin Towers are now watery memorials with names imprinted forever along their sides. Names of those who lost their lives on 9/11/2001 attacks.

Looking through, at the base of the South Tower footprint, one can see the American flag through the water curtain of the memorial. I'll be visiting soon to photograph these sacred grounds again. Hope you'll do the same.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
