Q What stands out for you when you think back to what you were doing on September 10, 2001? What do you recall about that day, and the circumstances in which you took the photo?


This was my first visit ever to New York City, and I was anxious and excited to see it all. I was staying with friends who lived there, but I was exploring the city on my own that day. It started off as a beautiful sunny day, and finding myself in lower Manhattan in the early part of the afternoon, I thought it'd be a perfect opportunity to take the ferry to see the Statue of Liberty and visit the Immigration Museum on Ellis Island.


When I took this photo, I was on the grounds by the Statue of Liberty. The weather had changed so quickly. At one moment the twin towers were bathed in sunlight - the next they were surrounded by deep blue/grey storm clouds. Even still, with the clouds all around, the towers stood out, almost out of place and even more out of proportion to the buildings around them.
