Brooklyn’s Wall Of Remembrance


I went out for the evening, the D300 in hand, looking to shoot some images. I end up at Key Span Park, home of the New York Mets minor league affiliate the Brooklyn Cyclones. I’m walking around the park, the Cyclones were on the road that night, and I turn up the side of the ballpark and discover this 9-11 Memorial. I was kind of stunned. There, on the bottom row was a plaque for Captain Vinny Brunton. He was a guy I knew, a man I knew, and we lost him on 9-11 but seeing him on that wall, almost by accident, was…just sad all over again.

  1. I was at The 911 site on sept 13th. I volunteered to help for abot 40 hours. I am looking for anyone that may have been there on the 13th and 14 that may have taken pictures. I took about 60 photos myself but did not include myself in any of the pics. It may seem unimportant but it was part of history that I was part of. If anyone has pics pleas share. I will share what i have.
    Thank you

  2. Louis, I really like this one, it’s a great shot and it symbolizes the great heros that gave their lives to save others. IT is great that you posted it. When I viewed it large I got goosbumps. Perfectly done Louis.
