‘Oculus Reflection” – 9-11 Memorial, New York

“Oculus Reflection"- 9-11 Memorial, New York

“Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.”
 – Audre Lorde

The ‘Oculus’ is the odd, skeleton looking building left of centre. It is part of the connection between the New Jersey PATH transit system and the New York subway systems that intersect at the World Trade Centre complex. It’s not quite finished but far enough along that you get the concept.” 

My eye caught this awesome reflection on the wall of the 9-11 Museum complex, offering a near perfect reflection of the World Trade Centre Plaza, including the Oculus. It was very bright and difficult to balance the bright surfaces yet shows the people lined up to enter the museum, but it all worked out after a few exposure adjustments.
