Tribute in Light

Newer Older

Tribute in Light, which is organized by the Municipal Arts Society, has shined into the New York sky every year on September 11th since 2002 and serves as a very powerful memorial to the people who lost their lives on that day in 2001. It has secured funding for this year and next and I hope they can come up with a way to make it a permanent annual memorial.

I took this on Tuesday night when they were doing a test run of the lights. I've taken other photos from this spot recently and thought it would be a fitting place to photograph the memorial.

Tribute in Light will shine from dusk this evening until dawn tomorrow morning.

The Dude Company, Philip Case Cohen, and 591 other people added this photo to their favorites.
