After being up for almost 36 hours straight we were able to get a good night’s sleep last night. This morning we started another busy day in NY, this time we headed for Greenwich Village, Ground Zero and the Statue of Liberty. I can’t believe how many things there are to see and do in on this tiny little island. I’m in a conference for the next two days so we wont be doing much during the day so I’ll be getting some night shots for the next couple of days. I think we are going to try and make it to the Empire State Building tomorrow night at sunset so that should be fun.
Here are some images from today.
Us on the ferry on the way to see the lady.
Here we are with Lady Liberty.
Another one of us… but hey… it’s our vacation right?
Here she is in all her glory! (no photoshoping… this is how I shot it)
This is what lady liberty wakes up to every morning. The NY sky line from Liberty Island.
This is an image Becca took of a memorial that some kids put together across the street from the hospital where the wounded were taken on September 11th 2001.
This is part of a memorial on the exterior wall of the building housing Ladder Co. 10 directly across the street from Ground Zero.
Home of all the great men and women that make up Ladder Co. 10
I don’t even know what to say about this one. The feeling that came over Becca and I as we walked up to the empty hole is indescribable. I didn’t even want to photograph it, all I really wanted to do is pray for those who lost their lives and their loved ones on that dreadful day.
Right as we got off the ferry after returning from Liberty Island it started pouring rain and hail. If you look closely you can see the rain still falling in the next images. These are grave stones in a church near Ground Zero.
