Chicago Sky Line

Posted by Corey Brown June © 2009

Chicago the City of Wind. Chicago is a very beautiful city as long as you take a step back from the hustle and bustle. This is only a partial of a skyline shot that was done for a commercial sub shop. The final print will be close to 14 feet wide, as soon as it is hung I encourage you to check it out.

Do you remember?

Posted by sabmarie82 On 12:18 PM
Today marks the anniversary of one of the United States' most tragic events. Anyone that was old enough to understand what was going on eight years ago remembers exactly where they were that day. So for today's blog I won't be posting any photos. We've all seen numerous photos of the destruction and devastation from that day and some will always have those images imprinted into our minds. What I am going to do for today's blog is share my memory of that day and encourage others to comment back with their stories. I think it is a very important that none of us forget the events of that day. Because when we forget we become complacent to other travesties that happen around us every day. So my memory of 9-11-2001... I was a sophomore at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois. After my freshman year I never had classes that stared before 9 am. I was just getting ready to get up and get ready for my day. I always listened to the radio all night long. As I was waking up I heard the people on radio talking about a plane crashing into the World Trade Towers. I was convinced at first that I had heard what the announcer said totally wrong. So I turned on the TV to CNN and sure enough there was the footage of one of the towers on fire from the first plane hitting it. As I was watching the second plan crashed into the other tower. I remember having a feeling of total disbelief. How could this possibly be happening here, in the United States!? I went ahead and got ready for classes and went to my first one. Western canceled classes for the rest of the day. In the four years that I attended Western this was the ONLY day that classes were canceled. My roommate and our friends all sat around the TV and watched CNN most of the rest of the day. Even now, all these years later I still get that somber feeling. After 9-11 the FAA grounded all planes. I remember walking outside at night and looking up and not seeing any planes. It gave me an eerie feeling to know that there were no planes flying. After the FFA started letting planes fly again I remember being in my dorm room one afternoon and hearing a plane flying low over the building. The stark terror I felt still stays with me. For an instant I just knew that some crazy terrorist was going to fly a plane into the college!!! It ended up being just a little plane flying by and they don't fly as high as jets do. Like I said before all of us that were old enough to know what was going on that day has a memory of it. I encourage any that would like to share to do so. Also remember all of those that gave their lives that day. May they rest in peace. Until next time - God Bless. Sabrina Brown (Glory 2 Jesus 4 Photography)
