Thank you, Hexter. I hope that the picture furnishes at least as much hope as it triggers painful memories...

Thtat is one of the most beautiful scenarie sites of New York ever that I have ever encountered to see. 9/11 was not just only an unforunate event but its something afterwards to look back and at and realize that without we wouldn't of known its true structure and how such a disater can concur our lives. We learn from not even mistakes but invietable thingse that make us know facts and illussions that come true when we least expect them at unwanted times. So when something like this would ever happen, we're prepared for the sake of our feelings and loved ones that anything could happen to change.

Thanks, Worldglarer! Merry Christmas, Peace, and a Happy New Year to you and all of yours.

Kevin, thank you for your compassionate comment and your question for prints. I'm doing photography only for fun, so: No, I don't have a website to sell prints. I do have higher resolution versions of this image that could be prep'ed and used for prints. If you're interested, send me an email (mbx777@comcast.net), and we'll work something out. I'm asking for some patience, though: I'll be pretty much out of touch for the next three weeks...

Cheers, --michael

I'm putting together a "Highest Hits in NYC" section on the Forum: New York Sightseeing. Can I use this photo?

I ACCIDENTALLY hit the "inappropriate" section on this photo and want to state that I feel totally the opposite. This is the most beautiful picture I have ever seen. I would be most heart broken if it were removed from the website because of a mistake. The image of the beautiful blue light shining for all to see that Americans do not feel conquered. We stand proud and remember all those that died on that tragic day. We will Find Osama Bin Laden ... we will have justice. GOD BLESS OUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY AMERICA !!!
