During my time away, I visited New York City. While taking photos at the September 11th Memorial, this man struck up a conversation with me.
HIs name is Scott Crawford. I quickly surmised that he visited here quite often. He told me he’d been drawn to this place by a facscination with the architecture that followed in the wake of 9/11. Scott moved here from Virginia because he wanted to be near the World Trade Center. Originally, he planned to walk the 300-plus miles to NYC. But after realizing he couldn’t get enough rest time on the road, he took a bus the rest of the way.
He was kind enough to let me take his picture. We took several because the light was not the best. This one was my favorite, and I thought really captured his nature.
