The two best pictures I've taken are technically pretty bad. They were snapped on a three megapixel Sony camera that now belongs to my daughter. The colors aren't good, the image is grainy and it's poorly composed. But they were taken in New York City not long after 9-11.
Buildings are buildings. As much as we like to attribute a certain amount of character to them, they're buildings. They stand, they serve a purpose. And sometimes they fall. But people, well, people dream, feel, love, laugh, cry, try, fail and, most importantly, hope. In the cab ride to Ground Zero, I tried to prepare myself for the worst. But when we arrived, I saw only a construction site. A big hole in the ground. When I entered St. Paul's, though, I saw the tragedy, the real effect, the true cost. Remember those people.Posted by Chris at September 11, 2012 7:27 AM
