Photo taken on 9/9/01-just two days before the demise of our cherished Twins. Strangely, I awakened that Sunday morning with an unrelenting urge to spend the day photographing the Twin Towers. I followed my heart. Little did I know...

Thank you. I didn't know if this would be too controversial a topic for this site. Thanks for your positive response.

Beautiful image, Tamra! Nostalgic, too. It's a sorry state of affairs when people are afraid to do normal things because of the fear of "offending" someone. Your image is very good and should stand on its own. Thank you for your tribute.

Thank you for sharing this with us Tamra. This is a great capture. Love that bright yellow you captured with the water sport. Nice and carefree. Unlike how we would feel a few days later. Again, thanks for sharing.
