9/11 Memorial Visit

As I approached one of the reflecting pools at the 9/11 site, my eye immediately caught these single white roses lodged  in a few of the names around the perimeter. A sign nearby gave the explanation: "As a tribute, the 9/11 Memorial places roses upon victims' names on their birthdates." And, so I began photographing the flowers as I walked around the pool This particular image was spiritual and somewhat haunting. The morning sun creating  a shadow between two buildings and a halo on the white rose against the dark metal. It sent shivers to my spine as I clicked the shutter.
