A tribute to the "Tribute in Light"

I have been photographing the "Tribute in Light" for almost 15 years now. I have had a great attraction for the spirit of this yearly memorial created in the air by projecting two giant beams of blue light commemorating the two fallen towers in downtown New York City. I have taken a few photos almost every year since then. 

I saw the twin towers fall on September 11, 2001. My wife worked in the North tower but luckily didn't get to work that day. We have fond memories of visiting, shopping, dining, and generally hanging out near the towers. We didn't know at the time but the twin towers were special to us just as they were to so many. We saw them every day while leaving to work and coming back. We saw them every evening. And since 9/11/2001 we have been seeing the empty void and then the new tower that slowly and now has categorically taken the symbolic place of the old towers. The skyline now looks bold and bright again. 


Here is my tribute to the Tribute in Light: 15 photos to mark the occasion of the 15th anniversary of 9/11. Featuring my favorite building in the favorite city in the world.
