Last November, The Armchair Squid shared the existence of this blog (9/11 WTC Attack Photojournal) with me. The photo here is NOT from that blog, but the photos there are breath-taking and provide a harrowing first person account of the day.
"This is a photo-journal of my experience on 9/11/2001. On the day of the World Trade Center attack, I was living inside what is now known as "Ground Zero". My apartment...is one of the buildings closer to the WTC on the left side.
I found myself shooting these photographs as the entire event unfolded. Running from the falling tower, I was evacuated to New Jersey on a tugboat from Battery Park.
This photo journal is my way of sharing my experience with other people. Please feel free to share it with others. If it makes a difference, if it reaches one more person who may take away something from it, I am grateful. If you feel so inclined, I would be happy to hear from you (whether it be your experience, or otherwise - and many thanks to those who have sent me kind thoughts and wishes through this ordeal)."
