I took digital snapshots of my television screen yesterday morning (911)
while watching the live news coverage of the terrorist attacks on the USA.
Forty-two of the images are now available at www.quondam.com , and they are
presented in the order in which they were taken. It turned out that I only
took pictures for about an hour, from the time of the second plane crashed
into the towers, up to the time the first tower collapsed. The shots of New
York City are interspersed with President Bush's first news announcement in
Florida, Air Force One before it left Florida, and images of the first
indication that something had also happened in Washington D.C.
While it may seem redundant to post these images online, I've found that
most of the images are not the ones that are now repeatedly shown on all the
At www.quondam.com there is a sampling of thumbnail images that are
hyperlinks to the larger images presented in sequence (the top thumbnail
image corresponded to the first large image). The titles below each large
image is a link to one of the 50 odd letters sent mostly by architects to
design-l throughout the day of 911. Often the juxtaposition of the images
and the text of the letters is very poignant.
