9/11. Reflections

When I checked this week’s WordPress challenge, Mirror, I immediately knew what I want to share. I would say reflections are my ‘speciality’, I have so many photos on this theme that would be difficult to choose if we weren’t so close to 9/11. Plus, this picture has never been shared on the blog, so this is the perfect opportunity.

This photo was made in New York in December last year, while visiting the 9/11 memorial. What really stroke me that day were the many people who were taking funny selfies at the memorial, forgetting somehow the place’s significance. I wanted to make an image that was different from everything else you usually see from the memorial, when I saw the reflection in the memorial’s pool. I knew this was the shot.

I clearly remember the day in 2001, because 9/11 it happens to also be my sister’s birthday. We were eating birthday cake in my hometown, Targu-Jiu, when we heard the news on the radio. I barely knew what the World Trade Center was at the time. Almost 15 years later I’m writing this post from an airport in Berlin.

9:11, NYC
