New York Skyline before 9/11
These photos are from my personal collection… shot during one of my visits to the US in 1999. This is how the New York skyline used to look like before the terrorist attack on twin towers of World Trade Center on 9/11 in 2001.
These photos were not shot on digital – digital photography was still in nascent development state in those days. I was carrying my bulky Nikon F70D purchased in Japan. These are panorama photos – not supported in entry level today’s digital SLRs. What you are seeing are scanned from original prints.
These photos were shot in 1999… two years later these towers were gone… one single incident in history that changed the whole world.
