The September 11 Tribute in Light
September 12, 2012
In 2011, the tenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks was supposed to be the last year of the Tribute in Light, an art installation depicting a ghostly visage of the World Trade Center Twin Towers in lights. Last year, I went all over New York photographing this event, despite the lousy weather. I was surprised to learn the Tribute in Light would be done again this year, and this evening weather was absolutely perfect.

Like last year, I went to DUMBO in Brooklyn and walked along the waterfront. By my estimation there were over a thousand people present with cameras. The buzz was that this was going to be the last year, which has been rumored for about the past 5 years. I don't have much commentary, so enjoy the photos.
