Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Change.

A place of great change, sudden and gradual, catastrophic and constructive, individual and collective, visible all around—

  5. my parents, Staten Islanders, often visit the site to photograph its progress. such a sense of healing to see it being rebuilt, but life will never be the same for the families of so many who were killed that day. Thank you for posting this as a reminder how much has changed.

  6. And it must be changing everyday, I suppose :)

    • Yes, it is—slowly but surely.

      These photos were taken a year ago, in April 2012. Since then, we’ve seen the new World Trade Center tower often, albeit from a greater distance, every time we’ve returned from a paddle to Pier 40. And I always take a picture. Here is one of the most recent pictures of it, from early March of this year:

      Over the past year it’s clearly risen much higher, but it’s still not finished…

  27. Beautifully captured Vladimir. The last time I was there I was staring out over the top of New York city. What a peaceful memorial that truly is.

  28. Wonderful, wonderful.
    I’ve never seen the new memorial. How lucky to see it through your eyes.

  29. It’s a great place to visit and see change every time. I have to say that after 3 or 4 years I started to dislike working there though. One couldn’t get away from the constant reminders of a horrible event – bright and shiny as it is, beautiful as the memorial is, there is still so much tension there, at least if you’re there every day. But it certainly is a good symbol of change.

  30. Beautiful pictures! I really like the second one down. I watched a program about how this was designed, and the symbolism and meaning behind almost everything that we see in the new building and memorial. It was fascinating to watch it, and now to see these pictures makes it even more meaningful! Thank you! Excellent as always!
