9/11 – Five Years Later

Five years later, a search of dotPhoto’s public galleries yields thousands of images that tell the story of the World Trade Center from construction to the views from its famous observation decks and to the now familiar, horrible aftermath.  Some images, like the plaza spontaneously decorated in chalk messages of love and the “Tribute Lights” that reached to heaven, are powerful memorials.
