    Wow. Wish I had seen this. It seems so solemn in your perspective here. But I think you also mentioned its a shopping mall? Don’t quite know how I feel about that. Still a stunning image.


    • Thank you very much Emilio 😀 I purposely took this image to avoid all of the people on the main floor because I’m not to happy they commercialized it with a shopping mall either. This is more a view of the observation platforms and ceiling.

    • Thank you so much Alys it is an extraordinary structure 😀 I don’t think any of us said a word to each other while we were in there. We were all to busy snapping pictures. It was so much fun to finally meet Laurie she’s a blast.


      • Joe, I can well imagine. It’s been many years since I visited New York, and it was before 9/11. It must be an amazing place to visit from a photographer’s perspective as well.

        Laurie is a lot of fun. She hosted us in her home when we visited DC, drove us all over the state, and acted as host, tour guide, historian and all around fun person. I admire her greatly, too, for all she does for women and all she does in her community. It must have been a terrific weekend.
