Dear Photograph, I awoke to the sound of an airplane hitting the tower. As we looked up and stared in utter disbelief at the nightmare unfolding in front of us, all I could think was “please, let this be a bad dream”. How I wish it had been… Mark Yokoyama
What a powerful photo to commemorate the fall of the Twin Towers. It’s already ten years ago and yet the world could still feel the reverberations the disaster caused. In a sense, it caused a great shift within the US of A, which in turn caused the world view on terrorism to change.
Let’s share a prayer or two today to all the families that were affected then, now and in the future.
“It seems to me that the most important way to improve your skill as a photographer is to have some sense of what you’re trying to achieve or say; a sense, even if vague, of how you’d like a picture to look and how to get your camera to produce what you want. Without this you’re basically just snapping the shutter and hoping for the best.”
