Sounds of Today

Strolling down the Hudson

I think I found the one place that is semi quiet on the west side highway this morning

I spend a lot of time on the weekends walking south by the Hudson river. I consider it time when I can press the reset button from the previous week. Over the past couple of months I’ve been capturing the growth of Ground Zero as it has risen. While the buildings are not completed yet, above are some of the angles that I’ve captured.

This morning felt quite a bit different as I walked by people in an assortment of uniforms, families and others contemplating the day. The sounds will be hard to forget. The silence because of the lack of cars driving around, people listening to radios of the names called out, a small procession with a bag piper playing, and kids on their scooters. I wasn’t sure what to expect but it felt right in light of the circumstances of the day.
