Photo Of The Day #109 – One WTC


It really took some time to find a place where I was happy with the framing…

… for my shot of the One WTC, what I by the way like to call Freedom Tower. It’s just a lovely name.

A day before I took some shots but wasn’t really satisfied. After I got my advance pass for the 9/11 Memorial I slowly went from 20 Vessey Street to the Memorial and sat down for a while at the church.

I had this frontal view on the tower and thought about how to frame the image in a pleasant way. At this moment a photographer who did some street photography passed bye and took a shot of me. Not that this was important for my composition but I thought it would be good a good thing to tell you this.

At a certain moment I recognized that the leaves of the tree would add some little extra to the composition. So I took the image and I’m quite happy that I took this little break to rethink my work.
