This shot was taken in the financial district of NYC. We walked around Wall Street in the rain and then back up to the World Trade Center. I had taken a photo of the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks a few months after it happened. I wanted to go back and take a picture that would show how much progress has been made since then. As I was photographing the half finished building I thought I really didn't just want to capture an image of the building but also of those who are around it daily. I squatted down, pointed the camera up towards the building and snapped this photo when the two gentlemen walked into the frame.
