Looking Into the Past: Girl Turns Away from Watching the World Trade Center Burn, Brooklyn Promenade, September 11, 2001

    Newer Older

    At this point on that day, both planes had hit in New York, and the Pentagon was just about to be hit (or had just been hit - I can't tell the specific time from this photo). It was clear America was under attack by terrorists. What must this little girl have been feeling?

      Back in 2001, I spent some weeks studying English in New York state, it was in April and March. My first time in NY, I loved the view of the twin towers from the top o Lady Liberty... I still have that image very present in my mind. Let's hope we never witness such a crime again.

      Beautiful image. Thanks for sharing.

      Very thought provoking images, very clever in the way you have returned to the same spot and matched the images up.

      We all need to say a prayer for peace today ... so very sad!

      I just found this site today: www.dearphotograph.com where people submit things like this...an old photo held up in the same place years later. It is a such a moving and beautiful thing. Amazing <3
