The two strong beams of light resembling the Twin Towers' descent toward the heavens, they serve as a beacon of contemplation and reflection. The Tribute in Light has become a powerful international symbol of 9/11 for more than a decade.

 

Thank you for your comments.

When I was lead inside this lair of lights I looked straight up and the very first thought which entered my mind was:

"No...This is unreal"

...even though the first words out of my mouth were

OMG!

 

This is the sight within one of the two groupings of beams which made up the Tribute in Lights. 44 lanterns/lamps for each grouping. This here is the center of one of those groupings.

 

Mind you, I've yet another shot looking straight up. This one looks as it does due to the Wide Angle used.

 

Hoping everyone's weekend has been a swell one.

I had a bunch of shots I'd taken and so did not want to post them one after another. Figured it was better to show them grouped as I've done here. See others below.

 

The above was quite the opportune angle. Walking east to west along Chambers Street I saw this as did a group of other folks who couldn't steal themselves away from this spot. It certainly Does seem as if the lights are coming out of the top of the Woolworth Building, doesn't it? As for the overexposure? Yeah, I've got alot of learning and fiddling to do with this camera before I ever master it. LOL.

 

This and the others here are handheld shots assisted by the odd pole, bus stand and building facade. ;-)

 

Here's wishing one and all a HAPPY Weekend ahead.

 

See other shots below.

Never quite finished with my posting of shots from that evening. Here the buildings are much more evident as are the lamps/lanterns.

 

Mind you, take a look at the note above to see where the other beam grouping is.

 

Hoping everyone's weekend has gone well thus far.

After all these years I finally went out and got both beams. Taken from Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ.

Tribute in Light for Sept 11, 2013, Looking to Manhattan from Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City, Queens. The red glow is from the Pepsi sign seen in my last photo: flic.kr/p/fTQ7oR

Had shot this last September 11th from the Brooklyn Navy Yards now known as the piers. Hadn't uploaded it anywhere until this very week. Just going through some old photos I guess.

 

Wishing all well and a most wonderful weekend ahead.

The Tribute in Light is an art installation of 88 searchlights placed next to the site of the World Trade Center to create two vertical columns of light in remembrance of the September 11 attacks. It is produced annually by The Municipal Art Society of New York. It initially ran as a temporary installation from March 11 to April 14, 2002, and was launched again in 2003 to mark the second anniversary of the attack. As of 2010, it has been repeated every year on September 11. It had been announced that 2008 would be its final year, but the tribute was continued in 2009. On December 17, 2009, it was confirmed that the tribute would continue through to the tenth anniversary of the attacks in 2011.

 

I was hoping to get some wide angle action going with this shot (similar to the 3rd shot in comments) but as luck would have it, mother nature wasn't having any of that and put down a dense carpet of clouds and fog. So I shot the skyline tightly eliminating the excess sky. But at the same time the light hitting the clouds created a bit of an outer worldly effect. Hopefully this isn't the last year for the Tribute in light. It really is a great way to mark this historic day in NYC.

What might such a world be like?

 

Doesn't take a genius to ponder upon the implications & consequences of what such a scenario would entail.

 

This is a mild continuation of something I began 13 months ago.

Take a look if you wish at the last image from that series.

 

Once again, wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead. :-)

wonder if they'll still do it this year and maybe i should try shooting it from some other vantage point this time...

I can't think of the last time I was touched in such a way by an experience of this nature. Even more so when I found myself within the midst of these lights as I will share through photo(s) at a later moment.

 

Here is one set of the two which make up the beams of light which have shown into the sky every year on September 11 since the 1 year anniversary of 911. Before which there was the appearance on the 6 month anniversary.

 

Mind you, the squares are arranged in proportion to the original twin towers with 44 lanterns/lamps making up each grouping. Special thanks go to (MASNY) Municipal Arts Society of New York for their Tribute in Light project funded by the (LMDC) Lower Manhattan Development Corporation. 'and thanks to all involved in the creation and delivery of this annual lighting.

 

After all this we traveled up to the Greenwich Village area of Manhattan to be greeted with a huge amount of activity by a multitude of personalities and lifestyles. 'and if you've ever been to the Village on a Saturday night then you'll know of which I speak. What a pleasing way to end the evening especially on such a lovely day as this has been. This is what freedom in America is all about. God Bless!

 

...more to come.

Tribute In Lights 2013

 

Gone but never forgotten!

 

9/11/2001

 

This day shall remain in our hearts and minds forever. No matter where you are from, everyone is a New Yorker today. New York City is truly a city built on resilience.

 

I decided to go out to Brooklyn Bridge to capture this view on such a memorable day. The lights shined bright and crowds of people gathered to see. People from out of town, people from New York City... It did not matter where you were from, everyone shared and embraced the moment!

New York City, 9/11/2008

I dedicate this photo to my friends Bushra & Sons. Thank you so much for the birthday greeting video you made for me. I spent the eve of my birthday waiting for the rain to stop and the clouds to clear, and grabbed the opportunity to take photos of this "Tribute in Light" memorial at the WTC site (downtown Manhattan New York City, New York).

 

Taken from the Exchange Place boardwalk in Jersey City, New Jersey on 9/11/2009 at around 11:45 PM.

 

Thank you all so much for the visits and comments.

On the eve of 10th anniversary of 9|11 visited Brooklyn waterfront where we made a silent prayer for the heroes who lost their lives in the attack on WTC. The "Tribute in Light" shows their pathway to heaven. The melancholy tune of the bagpiper makes your heart heavy.

 

This is a single image digitally processed using Photoshop and Topaz plugins.

Image above features the lights earlier in the evening while there was still the hint of light in the sky. It wasn't until later that the skies darkened and the Tribute in Lights became more pronounced.

 

Have still more images of which one blew my mind away. When I took it I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Although it should've been obvious, for me it was not. You'll see that one later.

Once again, wishing all the very best and a most wonderful rest of the weekend!

The Tribute in Light display beaming up into the night sky over NYC from where the Twin Towers once stood. Today we remember all those who were touched by the tragedy and we honor all those who risked or gave their lives to help save others.

The happy rush of motion blur on the pier is from a wedding party having their portraits taken with the city as a background.

I dusted off this one from my old archives, it was taken while I was living in mighty new York city working at Wall St. I think this was the 11 year memory of 9/11 and there was news going around that they were going to stop the tribute in light after this last time.

 

So I got out to Brooklyn Bridge Park in the afternoon to get a good shot of the NY skyline and hopefully some sunset colors. And I was not disappointed, the sunset sky was excellent even without the customary clouds. As soon as I was at the location I was obsessed with the wooden pillars sticking out from the water and I wanted to get them as foreground interest for this shot.

 

I had posted earlier a shot using my big stopper but it didn’t have the lights. This one was taken when the tribute in light display came on, but I didn’t had time to use the big stopper so I used a 3 stop ND filter to slow the water down and a 2 stop ND grad for the sky. I have to go through my old archives a little bit more carefully to see if have any more good shots that missed my initial scan.
