I enjoyed finding photos in my archives for the theme of this week’s Photo Challenge – Connected.
I’ve only been to New York City twice, once a few months after 9/11, and the second time a few years later for a business trip. Prior to my visits, I had heard many stories about how cold and unfriendly New York can be, but I found it to be just the opposite.
Maybe it was because I visited NYC right after 9/11 and people were just happy to have visitors, or maybe it was something less tangible, like a swell of energy generated by this massive stein of humanity.
Whatever it was, I witnessed many ways in which the people of that wonderful city connected, and those images have stayed with me and left a place in my heart that is as warm and sustaining as the city itself.
