    I saw these a little while ago. I still remember that day pretty vividly. Crazy sad.

    Kind of reminds me of the shots the James Nachtwey did on 9-11. He didn't do any aerial shots; but shots from 9-11 by good photographers seem to be rare so it is pretty easy in my mind to be reminded of others.

    I still think it was an inside job. Not sure if was Big Tobacco or the Teamsters, but something's up.

    it's really still surreal to see images like that after all these years.

    I'm sure you've seen Steve McCurry's shots from that day - he woke up that morning after having just returned from (India?) the night before.

    Speechless.

    I was blown away by how huge and massive the dust cloud was after the collapse.

    Had to Google him to remember the shots but Ive seen them before. He made a book out of it. It was a similar story with Nachtwey: He had just gotten home a few days prior then woke up in his apartment to the sight sounds of the first plane crashing.

    I cant imagine what it would be like to wake up to something like 9-11 happening outside your window.

    Understandable, didn't you do search and rescue/recover?
    It's all fun and games until someone ends up in a cone.

    That's how I felt watching it at the time, it didn't seem like it could be real.

    Amazing pictures, I'm with HW, #5 is wow.
