Each year the World Trade Center lights come on for a few days in remembrance of 9/11. The lights are eerie yet comforting and the entire area (just for those few days) is just a tad bit quieter than usual. Like a moth drawn to the flame these lights attract bugs, birds (b/c of the bugs) and of course tourists and photographers. One of the challenges is framing. You can always take photos of the lights from far away on the backdrop of the cityscape. As you get closer framing disappears. It took me awhile but I was able to find an interesting polygon formed by surrounding buildings to frame the lights.
