[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Today I am extremely sad. Without pretending having the truth here the following link will explain the reason of my feelings. Please take time in viewing this documentary. Loose Change , I hope you will circulate it yourself to yours. It is in English , subtitled in French.

Remembering all the victims of 911, remembering all the events that followed this tragic day, remembering all the consequences to our small community, i.e. our entire planet. I thought today I would simply post this link to you. I respect too much life to keep this info to me. So I respectfully pass it on to you. I leave up to you to make your own opinion.

About the photo, Of course, it was not taken in New York, but in Saint-Simeon last year. In fact it is useless except, the photo here is just to show, the light is at the end of the tunnel.

But are we ready for it? When we look at what happened since that day. It raises a lot of questions....

My first album I bought back in 1973. This song came to my mind seeing and thinking about this documentary.

Eclipse - Album Dark side of the moon -
Produced by Pink Floyd
Released March, 1973
Recorded in Abbey Road Studios between June 1972 and Junary 1973

All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All you feel.
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All you save.
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy,
beg, borrow or steal.
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say.
All that you eat
And everyone you meet
All that you slight
And everyone you fight.
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

"There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark."

Clip from Pulse Show

Peace to all.

Hi Robert,

Feel sorry for all of this and understand your sadness ... do remember that we still have the light, the hope ...

have a better tomorrow,

I am trying to watch the video right now.
not knowing the truth is terrible.
but regardless of the truth...the loss is more terrible.
no words for that.....


..and let's hope that "the light at the end of the tunnel" is not another train coming...
Maybe it's up to us.
Thanks for sharing

Thanks Robert, it is a time none of us will forget. Thank you for this reminder and the nudge to remember that our times are not in our hands.
I'll have to go back and watch the video over the weekend.

we won't forget! Take care kind regards Joke

Hi Rob,
I can understand your feelings as the events that took place during and after 911 shook the entire planet! It's amazing how vulnerable we all are. I like your composition here as it's very thoughtful & creative.

Lest not we forget...


What a post. Good video, good notes that set the mood for the video.
Nice work.
Bless the vicitms of 9-11.

I saw a movie like that last year! Can't say if it was the same! Rude reality!
Who can we trust when we see something like that in the big politicians.

Je n'ai pas vraiment écouté jusqu'au bout. Peut-être 10 minutes. J'en suis saturé de ces horreurs. C'est démontrer que le symbole de l'économie est devenue le symbole de la traîtrise un pareil document. 3 ans que dire l'horreur!

Touching, Robert. I haven't had a chance to watch the video yet, but I will make time soon.

What can I say. There's nothing new under the sun?

Hello Robert,

First off the notes and link are fantastic, meaningful and thought provoking. Who really knows...? Things like this have taken place all through time, all over the world in many forms... corruption just gets more sophisticated as time goes on.

Whatever the true origin of events we will never forget those events that day and those who were sacrificed and those who continue to suffer.

One thing that day did was bring good together like it has not in a very long time. People became kinder, more patient, compassionate, willingness to get involved and most importantly petty differences that mean nothing suddenly went away. The world got closer... this country thought as one! sadly these things seem to be slowly fading away... it is once again being shadowed by selfishness and inconsideration for others.

There are those who will not forget... people like you Robert! To remind us of the loss... to remind us of what really matters. With this there continues to be hope... the light.

Now for the photograph after my rant.

Outstanding Robert! The concept is incredible and the image perfect for your theme and intent. It is an extremely powerful image. One that forces thought. Excellent my friend!

And as far as Pink Floyd... one of my favorite songs as far as lyrics go... as deep as your image!

Love and Peace always

Touching- Welldone!

From memory, there were 9 Australian fatalities in 9/11, along with many other nationalities.

Immensely powerful, now on the eve of the 5th anniversary of 9/11. Thank you for remembering....


pas de mots......juste des pensees.......

You're right Robert! The truth IS out there but not nescessarily in a video which is produced and edited to convey a certain viewpoint - not unlike we do with our own photos.

What we see and read may or may not be true... Only the feelings and losses are aboslute facts at this point - but that does not make them easier to deal with...
