Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

15 May

I missed the last four photo challenges…..it is good to be back and join in this week’s challenge – Blue.

This is the Freedom Tower in Lower Manhattan, the main building of the World Trade Center Complex.  The tower is under construction and dominates the NY city skyline.  The clear blue sky on a cold winter morning is reflected on the glass exterior of the tower.

I have visited Ground Zero several times since that fateful day in 2001, and each time a sense of loss and grief tugs at your heart.

      Yes, and very special too. I loved your pictures of the Freedom Tower on your 9/11 Memorial post.

    Just like the old WTC before it, that tower is clearly going to serve many themes… (on our blog too, in several recent posts)

        Will do… we obviously have a lot in common!

        True, looks like we have some common traits, although I wish I was a kayaker too!

    My wife and I were there for the first memorial of 2002. What a sombre occasion.

    Never forget.
