10 years after

I was trying to take similar photo I took when I was here in 2000 (photo yesterday) and I think I did.
Actually, when I compare these two shots, it was a bit different...different angle...
I hope I will visit NY in 2020 and come back here to take photo again.

9 11

It's been 9 years since 9 11...
I still remember that typhoon came over to Kanto area and our office was closed.
When I was watching news at 10pm on TV, I saw the 2nd plane hit WTC. So terrible...

This phot was taken Sep 2000 when I went to NY with my families, about one year before the incident.
