New York City skyline in 2009 before the Freedom Tower
This New York photograph was taken from the Hudson River when I was boating from Florida to Maine in 2009. Although the construction of Freedom Tower (World Trade Center) began in April 2006, it was still not visible from the river.
The day was overcast and I felt that converting the image to black and white added to the mood that I felt that day. The clouds were dramatic which acts as a backdrop to all the modern and classic office buildings and apartments along the New York waterfront.
