Picture Lower Manhattan: The 9/11 Memorial

9-11 Memorial 2

The 9/11 Memorial is powerful, moving, beautiful — and it may be easier to describe through a camera lens than to put into words. The top photo is looking north, toward the north pool through a grove of trees. There are places to sit and enjoy a park-like atmosphere. The bottom photo is a wide-angle shot of the north pool looking south toward the Museum. I spent about 10 minutes at this vantage point, chatting with other photographers as we all tried to capture our own unique images of this remarkable, solemn space.
