That is a wonderful photo. I suppose one has to live in NYC to get a chance to take this shot. My cousin should have had a meeting in the WTC at 9/12. So she is a lucky woman.

Thanks, AxHo. I guess living here helps. But it's really enough to be there this one night of the year. I took this picture from the Stevens Institute campus in Hoboken.

Guessing from your collection you must be living in the area as well. I like your panorama views, in particular [this one] (http://www.panoramio.com/photo/1627256).

Axel Hölzinger on May 3, 2007

I would like to but I am from Germany. In the late 1950's my aunt moved to NYC where my cousins are born. Thanks for your kind words about my panorama views. Some of them decorate my white walls. :-)

Where from in Germany? (There's the same number of pics from Hamburg and München in your collection :-)

Axel Hölzinger on May 4, 2007

Moin! I am a born 'Fischkopf' living in Hamburg. ;-) Munich is also a worth-living city but I only spent a weekend there. Unfortunately, I rather like shopping in the Mönckebergstraße than taking photos of my city. I think that is typical for residents. Gruß, Axel

Great shot Michael, so sadly... Ciao

Michael Braxenthaler on May 5, 2007

Thanks, badge -- you're right, sadly so. But I found this light to also radiate tremendous defiant energy and hope, which I think is more tangible in this shot

Such a beautiful view after all that horror...

it´s beautiful but i´m so sorry...í can´t find any explication...

Michael Braxenthaler on June 7, 2007

Thank you for your words, cristianlate. No need for explications. Your words remind me of a conversation with an artist a while ago. Asked if he could explain one of his paintings he said yes, he could but he doesn't want to. He wants people to stop and look again when they see his painting/s - even if just for a few seconds, the important thing being the fact that they stopped, not the reason why...

Vielen Dank, NuhSarche. Das ist die Schönheit des Phönix aus der Asche...

Greetings Michael, What a powerful image. We all have that event burned into our minds. We can never go back, but in moving forward we can always remember and learn from the past. Thanks for sharing.



Michael Braxenthaler on September 5, 2007

Thanks, Rich. Of all the pictures in my collection this is the one I'm struggling most with: The bivalence, the tremendous span of opposing values condensed in this one symbolic view. A really appreciate the positive spin you give it in your comment!

Cheers, --michael
