Solace Beneath 1WTC

This image was created on my final road trip of my college baseball career with my fellow teammates. We were able to travel downtown for a bit, and I had this vision in mind. I wanted to capture the tower and create something different; I wanted to create something unique and pay tribute to the events that occurred in 2001. In this moment, with constant chatter and an endless bustle of the city, there was solace.
