I met up with a friend of mine, Daniel Hutcherson, in New York this past summer. He's a part of a 9/11 memorial project titled "dispersed memorial." These are a few shots from our visit to ground zero. Visit the Dispersed Memorial site to learn more about their project. I hadn't been to ground zero since 2005, and it's changed a lot since then. I think that the memorial is actually a great way to pay tribute to the lives lost on that day while showing the magnitude of what happened.
The memorial is essentially two huge holes in the ground. Buildings used to be there, and people used to work in those buildings. It's a lot to take in, but it's a peaceful and quiet place, so at least it's a good environment to do so.
