A RAW: The Oculus

Personally 9/11/01 and the site of the World Trade Center Towers will for always cause me a bit of angst. On that day, I was going to work like I normally did but, on that day I was filled with the knowledge just a few weeks before I'd be expecting my second child. Interestingly, even though took my 35mm Minolta down there and shot photographs of what I saw, I have no interest in looking at them, sharing or doing much with them. That was the last time I used that camera for shooting pictures.

Everything I felt after the first tower fell and that wall of lord knows what filled every street and breath I took just changed me. In that instant all I could think about while I stood there in front of 55 Water Street was focus, recompose and make my way home.

In Late 2016, I got close enough to see the Oculus but haven’t made my way to the reflecting pools yet. I’m mixed about it all I guess, but one feeling I do have is awe. I stand in wonder about the structure that challenges you to embrace the depth and imagination of its creators.
