not this shit again?

I went out last friday looking for something to shoot for the SPNow project with the intention of chasing the sun downtown and hoping to find a "tangle or signs and structures" to get lost in. As I got further and further downtown I realized I was only about 3 or 4 blocks from september 11th. In all these years I have made a conscious effort not to ever go down there. I am not really sure what my aversion to that area was based on, but I guess I just felt that any trivial use of that day feels gratuitous and shallow. Anyways, as I got closer I understood that for better or worse, that was what I wanted to shoot that day. I got a few okay shots, nothing that is gonna rival what has already been shot to death down there, but more important I got some closure. Thank god I can finally sort of put that shit behind me.
