Une journée que le monde entier n'oubliera jamais.
Ginnie Hart: So very true, Martine.
That is an intense way to begin the week.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Michael, especially for those living in Florida right now.
i think the storm clouds look quite suitable for the theme, Ginnie. and extremely worrying to read the reports about Irma
Ginnie Hart: There are so many "storms" all over the world right now, Ayush, and 9/11 seems an appropriate date to remember them. Thank you.

To my shame, I've overlooked the date. For years, the anniversary uses to haunt me. I've mentioned before that I was in New York just two days before the attacks. Natural disasters are even more terrifying as it's impossible to control those. The recent hurricanes are case in point. This image suits the sombre mood.
Ginnie Hart: To have Irma hitting Florida at its worst right now seems appropriate for this date, Alan. Even my son in Atlanta has been told to work from home today (noon to 9 p.m. shift) because the hurricane winds will reach that far north. It's hard to pur my head around so much devastation.
Appropriate, Ginnie. A lovely, dark image. Thank you.
I just didn't now what to post this year - In remembrance, with Prayers... and Happy Birthday to My Abby... Ugh.
Ginnie Hart: It's so hard, Elizabeth, especially with what's happening in Florida right now. Even my son Mark in Atlanta has been told to work from home today because of the winds expected to reach there. What a date for it to be happening on!

Buck up, Ginnie...where's your Happy Face!
Ginnie Hart: There's a time for a happy face, Ray, and a time for a sad/concerned face, as we all know. Today is the day for the latter, as so many across the entire state of Florida (and beyond, into Georgia, where my children live) face incredible destruction, loss of power, etc. It's peace midst the storm that I seek right now, more than happiness....if that makes sense.

You have put high drama into your today's picture Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Today is a day for high drama, Chris, especially in the entire state of Florida that is being pommeled by Irma. I've never seen anything like it in my life...in America.

A very impressive image of this gate I saw at day and night . Your image and your words are very fitting today.
Ginnie Hart: We were there when the front of the outside gate was in shadows, Philine, but I wanted to make it count for something. Today seemed to be the right day. Thank you.

I think with this post you put into a picture what is almost not to be said in words. The disasters in this world are following up each other far too fast and become more devastating each time...
Ginnie Hart: I couldn't have said it better, Astrid. This is that kind of day....

J'aime beaucoup cette photo. C'est un triste jour d'anniversaire
JP
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes we have these "dark" memories, JP, to help awaken us to what needs to be done in this crazy world of ours. It's not all sunshine and roses!

wow, that's a very dramatic picture! remind me to tell you what happened to me on the morning of 9/11... such a horrible day... and i'm going to go look at CNN now, about that horrific hurricane
Ginnie Hart: As I just told JP, sometimes we have these "dark" memories to help awaken us to what needs to be done in this crazy world of ours. It's not all sunshine and roses!

This is an interesting treatment Ginnie. I was not sure what to make of it, but I like it.
Ginnie Hart: Let's just say I tried to make something halfway decent with the shadow side of the landmark, Chad! smile
That 16 years has gone by so quickly hasn't it, and the dear old USA is taking another sort of beating thesd past few days.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Brian. The timing sure seems strange, doesn't it!

Sad week, yes...
Ginnie Hart: We've come a long way since then on some levels, Anne, but on others???? (sigh)
The Hurricanes have a left a trail of destruction across the Caribbean and now Florida. All this on a dark day for America remembering 9/11.

I hope your family will be OK
Ginnie Hart: The timing will be hard to forget, Bill, that's for sure. My son has been told to work from home today in Atlanta, to protect him from possible wind surges. That makes me feel good! Thanks.

A very ominous composition that fits your remembrance of 9/11 very well. We will never forget.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven. We must never forget and hopefully will not keep repeating our "mistakes" along the way.
This well illustrates the fears in the world right now. The black and gloom, the Korean bombs, storms and hurricanes, and green slime on the water. You don't know what is beyond.
Ginnie Hart: So true, Mary. So true. How we can find hope and peace midst the chaos is beyond me but we must!

A picture, coded in mood to the date. I keep on thinking of the people on islands like St Maartin who experienced the full force of Irma. When everything is down and devastated, some get up in the morning saying, what a brilliant day to steal. Let's go lift a shop and carry it home. Isn't there a lesson in there somewhere?

With Irma somewhat spent by her onshore visit, the US still have to content with their chosen leader...
Ginnie Hart: I'm quite sure "their chosen leader" is happy that the focus isn't on him right now, Louis, even though behind the scenes it still is! (sigh)

A very somber day for the world as we remember all the victims in this tragedy
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Emily. If only we could keep learning the lessons from these tragedies!
Amen...
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, so, Frank.
Would this world be peaceful if there was no religion?

Probably no!
Ginnie Hart: For every question there are 10 answers...and for every answer there are 10 questions! (sigh)
we remember well Ginnie...
a lovely tribute....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Too many things to remember these days, Peter, with all that's happening in our world. (sigh)
Très chouette ambiance sur ce cliché, j'aime beaucoup.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale. Most of us remember well.
nice contrast smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Joshi.
WOW. Such a beautiful and moving image. There's just so much going on in our world...my heart is so heavy!!
Ginnie Hart: We keep needing to see the patches of blue, Robin!
