a September 11th photo journal from ground zero

a 9/11 photo journal from ground zerodowntown manhattanI live in Tribeca, just north of the World Trade Center site, about four blocks away from ground zero. Each year since that terrible day, I've made it a point to visit ground zero to pay my respects to those who were lost there. For the past five of those years, I've carried a camera and documented a slice of time from each September 11th which I'm presenting here as a photo journal hosted on Flickr. The journal goes from last year, backward chronologically, and is a personal project. These are snapshots of the street life; people, artifacts and art, which caught my attention at the site. Ground zero has become a magnet for all sorts of people and agendas each September 11th. I could go on, but a picture is worth a thousand words. Chances are I'll make it down this year as well and have something new to share later this week.
