Found on zeldman.com: photographs by Christopher Casciano of the World Trade Center attack from the New Jersey shore.  All 72 images are more than worthy of examination, as they give a much-needed sense of scale to the attack’s effects, but for sheer impact it’s hard to beat pictures 8, 16, and 31.  Some of the images there are better, in a certain sense, than anything I’ve seen in the mainstream press.  It wasn’t until I looked through Mr. Casciano’s pictures that I really, truly understood just how huge the twin towers were, and how much of a blow it must have been to see them fall and disappear in a massive grey cloud of dust and smoke and ash.
