I made this image two years ago before I even had a dslr. My object in creating it was to tell a story, it wasn't so much about having a technically perfect image. At the time I felt as though people were forgetting about what happened on September 11th. I wanted to create an image with meaning.
The four candles represent the four hijacked planes with the two center candles representing the planes that hit the World Trade Center.
I just shot this with my point and shoot camera on a gorillapod. Yeah I probably could make a clearer image now with better sharpness and color, but this was about the story.
