Brooklyn Beacon "tribute in light"

I started my evening in Jersey City at Liberty State Park paying respect to the fallen at the the "empty sky memorial" until the park closed around 10p. Immediately following the close, i hoped in the car and ventured into brooklyn Where i made this Image.

I have always wanted to capture the Iconic Brooklyn bridge and tonight was a great night. With the 911 memorial "tribute in Light" beacons lit i knew i had the perfect opportunity to capture a historic event.

This memorial is a monument to the men and women that lost their lives in the tragedy of September 11, 2001 when 2 commercial airplanes crashed into the World Trade Center towers "twin towers" in lower manhattan. In honor of the 3000 plus lives lost that day, each year 2 beacons of light are illuminated from the former spot the towers once stood. This Image is dedicated to the fallen. its been 11 years since the tragedy and i still haven't forgotten
