New York City - September 11

September 11 every year is very sad for so many. 
It makes you realise that life itself can be taken away at a moments notice, so enjoy it and embrace it while you have it.

New York City - September - #5

On the eve of September 11, please spare a thought for the thousands of lives that were affected directly or indirectly, by terrorism.

New York City - September - #4

Amazing: As the caption on the picture notes, 2 beams fell from the 67th floor of the WTC and landed upright in the shape of a cross.

New York City - September - 1 year on

This time last year I was in New York City for 2 reasons. 

The first & probably the most important was to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre, and to pay my respects. 

The second reason was to revisit the city, which I last visited, in the summer of 1994. 

I didn’t know what to expect visiting the Big Apple after 17 years away, especially now that terrorism had played a significant part in reshaping & destroying many lives, not just within the city limits, but the nation as a whole. 

Over the course of September 2012, I hope to provide a daily photo & small caption on what I saw and felt at the time. 

There will be many photos from the Ground Zero Museum that will be confronting to some.  

It would fail in comparison to being there on September 11.....
