Getting That Shot
I took this photo at Union Square on September 2nd during the RNC invasion of NYC. The young woman is crying as she sits in front of a boot that represents one of the fallen soldiers during Operation Freedom. I'm not sure if she is a relative or a friend because I was too busy wiping the tears away from my eyes at the time to find out.
But I couldn't help also shooting the many photographers that surrounded her. While they may have been as shaken as me at the sight, the stake-out left me cold. Of course, I did take the picture, too. She made her grief public for a reason. But - none-the-less - I still feel creepy.
