May I correct myself:
Mark's photo has not been chosen as the photo of the year yet, but is ranked 3rd so far out of many great photos. Good luck Mark, but looks like that WTC ground zero photo has quite a lead... Big grin

Happy for the man that took the WTC flag raising photo. I have met him...a very nice guy! I think his will win Pulitzer.
Thanks for telling me about this.

He shoots for my local (and favorite) newspaper.... The Bergen Record. That was the shot of a lifetime I bet...

Hi all

While Mark's shot is fantastic, I don't want to put a dampner on things but I voted for another picture.

All I will say is that I am an animal lover.

I thought for a long time at all the pictures and there was always one that stuck in my mind.

Merry Christmas to all.

That's great!

That shoot was in newspapers here in Switzerland too. That was the first time I saw the picture! A great photo!

Congratulations!

Congratulations, you got my vote too.

That's awesome! How did they come across the photo?
I think it's a good antithesis to all the terrible images we've seen this year involving aircraft, so it gets my vote too!

Photo © Mark Garfinkel

One year ago today at 3:40pm I took this photo. January 2nd 2001 even though it has a different date on a.net (I am not sure how that happened, but will put in a correction request) Anyway, I wanted to thank all the nice a.net people that I have met (thru e-mail) from all over the world due to this photo. The experience of getting world e-mails telling me about the photo going into newspapers from around the world has been one of the nicest experiences of my life. Even the beginning of this thread taught me that it was one of the msnbc.com pictures of the year.

Well done! A great shot indeed, of course i didn't vote for it though..

Oh wait, i did Big grin

Haven't logged on for a while, been a tad busy....and have therefore just found out about the recognition Marks photo has been getting from MSNBC, and of course wanted to add my sincere congratulations.

Nice work Mark,
