Nothing is the bridge between the future and the further future. Nothing is certainty. Nothing is any definition of anything.

September 11, 2004,  Later in the Night

Taken on September 11, 2004, from Clifton, NJ, at 10:10 PM. 

NEAT !!! I GUESS I JUST

NEAT !!! I GUESS I JUST WAS NOT OUTSIDE OR IN THE RIGHT SPOT TO SEE THIS. COOL THAT YOU SAW THIS WITH YOUR OWN EYES AND NOT JUST ON TV LIKE I DID.

I DID SEE THE PLUME OF SMOKE FROM THE WTC COLLAPSE A FEW HOURS AFTER IT HAPPENED. MY BROTHER AND I TOOK A RIDE UP TO VALLEY ROAD IN CLIFTON UP INTO THE CONDO COMPLEX. AND I COULD SEE THE PLUME OF SMOKE AND PARTICLE FOR MYSELF. BUT NONE OF US HAD A CAMERA TO TAKE PICS.

I DID RECORD A LOT OF TV NEWS VIDEO THE FIRST THREE DAYS AFTER THE COLLAPSE. I MIHGT STILL HAVE IT ON VHS TAPE AND STASHED IN MY DRAWER. I HAVE NO DESIRE TO WATCH IT. STILL COME ACROSS A LOT OF 9-11 VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE AND I'VE SEEN ENOUGH !!

I DID SEE THE HALE BOP COMMET WITH MY NAKED EYES AND IT WAS OVER A BRIGHT STREAT LIGHT. TO BAD I LOST INTEREST IN PHOTOGRAPHY FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. I'M INTO IT MORE NOW AND I'M ABLE TO USE DIGITAL CAMS. THERE'S LOTS OF STUFF I CAN DO EASILY WITH DIGICAMS THAT WOULD OF BEEN DIFFICULT AND HIT OR MISS WITH FILM. AND I CAN STORE PICS AND VIDEOS ON A HARD DRIVE INSTEAD OF LARGE CABINETS, ETC.

Sept 11, 2004, Later that night

For several years after 9/11, NYC illuminated the location of the towers with this light display. These aren't the only photos I've taken on the subject. I was very surprised by the brightness even on a clear night. I figured a photo was a good idea.
