9/11 Pinhole Photos

1 comment

About a week after 9/11 I went home to the Jersey shore for Rosh Hashana. A lot of residents in my parents’ town, Rumson, and those nearby, Middletown and Atlantic Highlands, take a commuter ferry from Atlantic Highlands to downtown NYC. Beyond NY, these communities lost the largest number of people in the World Trade Center attack. At an intersection near the river people contributed to a makeshift memorial with photos, flowers, flags and candles. On Rosh Hashana I walked down the street in my nice holiday clothes with my pinhole cameras and took some photos at the fire station and in the neighborhood.

I don't like to crop the pinhole photos, because of the unique framing. But this one I did crop.
