9/11

While visiting New York City last year, I visited the 9/11 Memorial.  In observation of this day, I thought I would post two pictures from that visit.  The first, a panorama, gives an overview of the Memorial.  As I walked along the railing, I noticed a yellow rose placed in the engraving of one of the victims’ names, shown in the second image.  I later learned that the name, Ada M. Davis, was a civilian working in the Pentagon and was one of those killed when Flight 77 struck the building. NYC 911 Memorial 02 Blog

    • Thanks very much for your comments. It was a real crush getting in back in May 2013 and the security checks were extremely tight. The memorial itself, with the pools and falling water is surprisingly large, almost overwhelming.

  1. I’m glad you decided to photograph this. I went a couple years ago and it was really an intense experience. I love how the pools seem to symbolize a hole where all those people’s lives were that will never be filled.
