Thank you for the comments on my New York street, always appreciated.

Another one today from our trip to New York in November; we had been to this wonderful city, just a few months before and after 9/11 so have always wanted to go back to see what they have put in place of the Twin Towers - we weren't disappointed as it is a very striking and poignant memory to those that lost their lives there.

Whenever it's anyone's birthday they place a white rose by their name.

Have a good weekend!
Maggie

The downward angle is effective, it adds to the sadness.

A fitting tribute.
The horrors of that day still live in the memory from watching it live on TV.
The ripples extend out through the years.
Good shot.

Remembering what Humanity is capable of is always saddening but we must remember the innocent lives.

must be moving.. the bleak colours go well with the subject
glad you are still travelling around getting all these fine shots.
As to your question.. up to my eyebrows at work so less time than I'd like but there is a holiday on the horizon.

The softly bowed head of the white rose is very striking against the cold steel of the memorial.

I have very mixed feeligns about this - when we went to NY in 2008, we decided not to visit the memorial, as there seemed to be an air of rather maudlin obsession about the whole thing.

I don't for a moment pretend that it wasn't a terrible tragedy. But it was not war, in the sense of the Atlantic memorial in Battle Park, or the Blitz in London during the Second World War...

And it was used as a reason for terrible things.

The "War on Terror" was always a nonsense: you can declare war on a country, but not on an abstract idea. What George W achieved was to radicalise millions, and we all pay the price in a world that accepts terrorism as a part of "what's wrong with other people" instead of "a result of how we behaved in the past"...

We should remember the dead. We should be appalled that a few young men wanted to express their anger at how we live in the West by committing such a terrible act.

And we should ask, repeatedly, always, angrily: how did we get here? What must we do so that no-one ever feels motivated to do such terrible things again? How must we change ourselves, and what we do in the world?
