Empty Sky [Explored]

"Empty Sky" - the official New Jersey 9/11 Memorial at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ - looking across the Hudson River to Lower Manhattan.

PCA279 - I only had a few moments to get this right, as people were approaching and I wanted this to be a clean view showing the perspective, and connection between this NJ memorial and Lower Manhattan, which you can see in the not-so-far distance. The close-knit kinship between NJ and NY is unlike any other stately relationship, and this Memorial is a symbol of compassion, but also a sharing in the grief...as many New Jersians also died in the 9/11 tragedy as well.

 

Ultimately, I will need to retake this shot...I was a half a step left-of-center and therefore didn't achieve true symmetry!! Boy that bugs me.....the devil is in the details :)
