As seen in Times Square, NYC.
Great shot, Patti – there’s something really chilling about it. I think it’s the combination of the relaxed arm and the studiousness of the woman with the book.
Yes Richard, that exact combination certainly drew my attention, thank you!
I agree. That is kind of chilling, particularly as I remember seeing those scenes in person that day. Strange to think how much time has passed. That child wasn’t even born.
A big day for you Alison . . . .
Brill! Times Square. Who would have thought?
Who would have thought anyone could get a parking spot like that anywhere near Times Square!
what a great eye you have
Thank you so much Kathy!
A quick catch Pat, thank you so much!
and thank you Rabirius!
Images that will endure in infamy. Have you been to museum/memorial at ground zero, Patti?
Yes Lignum, those images will forever take the breathe away. I have been to the memorial but not to the museum . . . .
Wow Patti, really well spotted; you know what makes a good photograph. Some say lucky, but I say we spend a lot of practice getting good at being lucky!! Most photographers, including me, would have walked right by this..
Thank you Peter for your valuable words! As you say, practice is indeed a big part of it and I am quite sure that on the swings and roundabouts of opportunity you are way up there with your great shots!
I love this street photo. Just so full of humour!
Thank you so much Otto!
You have captured how intently she is reading, while the little boy smiles in the background.
It’s like being stopped in the middle of life while something dreadful is going on.
Which is exactly what 9/11 was …
You have said it all, thank you so much Laurie!
Ppfff, what a capture! Like you shot a groom scratching his ass on his wedding photo. Great shot, Patti. Right time right place.
Love your fine description, thank you Markus!
That can’t be her arm PK, you is foolin’ with us
Pete, I had to look twice but . . . no foolin’ with you. Promise!
The pictures in that book are some of the most impacting that I’ve ever seen in my life.
With you on that one Allan!
a picture in the picture… I just love your creative approach to documentary photography…
That is so kind of you to say, thank you Alexandra!
That’s what I thought when walking past!
Thank you Joshi 🙂
And greetings to you Frizz! Were you in London?
I used to get so irritated by the people who hawked those downtown. I felt like I was having to step around them on my way to work. I worked in the state Dept of Health above the post office next to the site, so they were ever present. At the same time, I understand the need. And it’s OK, becuase somewhere someone, maybe the person you photographed, is looking at the photos and reading the captions and maybe they’re feeling a bit of compassion. And maybe that will spread. Maybe.
Be well, Patti!
Wow Lyn, you were in the thick of it! Those hawkers didn’t take long getting it together did they? I like your thought on the spread of compassion, a little of which certainly goes a long way.
Reblogged this on M o o r e z a r t.
Lovely! Excellent moment!!
Thank you so much Malin!
