 Tomorrow is September 11, 2013. Come to think of it, I've been photographing the 9/11 Tribute Lights and other related events--be that the 9/11 Memorial in Lower Manhattan or the Tear of Grief memorial in Bayonne, for ten years now.
 

Way back when, (9/11/2003(4), I think) when the Tribute Lights were placed at/close to Ground Zero. Since then, they've been moved toward the southern point of Manhattan. Photo by Alina Oswald.

There is something about the lights--they capture a moment in time, help us stop and reflect on the important things in life.

Tomorrow, 9/11/2013, I'll be out again, trying to capture the morning ceremonies and evening Tribute in Light. I'll be back in the following days with more images.

Until then, thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi Sam,

    Appreciate your kind words. I try to capture each 9/11 day in pictures. Each year is a little bit different. Hope to continue doing this for many years to come.

    Thanks so much and hope you'll stop by again.
