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



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.

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.

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).

Thank you all so much for the visits and comments.

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:

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.

Tribute In Lights 2013


Gone but never forgotten!




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!

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.

“As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.” William Orville Douglas

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.

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

The September 11th Tribute in Lights as seen from the Manhattan Bridge. Never Forget.

© Copyright 2011, All rights reserved. Do not copy or otherwise reuse my photos.

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.

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.

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.


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" as seen from Manhattan Bridge at midnight of Sept-11, 2011.


View on Black


[Disclaimer: The beams in this photo are not 100% real. As it was very cloudy on this year's 9/11 night, the splendor of the beams were not at their full. So I manipulated the photo a little to make it closer to the actual beauty of the scene]

The Tribute in Light 2013, as seen from the Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn, New York City, NY.

Spending a week in NYC and at 09/11 they turn the lights on were once the WTC buildings were standing. A very special moment seeing this. The lights are so strong that they even find their way through the clouds.
