Guys- This might be a little off topic but I only post to this forum and thought I'd share with you all some recent wallpaper scans I made up of shots I took on March 11, 2002 of the "Tribute in Lights" here in NYC.
This is a month long tribute that was done to commemorate the 6 month anniversary of that dreadful day here in September 2001. If these two links to not work (AOL does act up from time to time) please email me privately and I will email the scans to you as a zip file.
The first scan features the nav lights of an inbound LGA flight streaking across the night sky, so this one is aviation related I guess.
And this second scan is without the nav lights streaks for those of you who would prefer one without it. Both scans show Ground Zero brightly illuminated to the right of the image.
For those of you interested in info regarding these shots here goes...
Both shots were taken from Owen Grundy Pier at Exchange Place in the financial district of Jersey City which is on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River. The beams stay lite every night till 11:00PM and will continue thru on till the end of next week I believe. Images were both around 13 second exposers shot on kodachrome 64 using a Nikon N90s with a Nikkor 80-200mm f~2.8 lens set at shutter priority using center weight meter and mounted to a tripod. Please feel free to use as wallpaper or pass along to friends and family. We should never ever forget what happened here that dark day on September 11th 2001 and in particular how this all affected our beloved airliner hobby too. Thanks...
