September 11th

I did not know Steven A. Giorgetti personally. He loved baseball and his family. Married for 18 years, he and his wife had two children--a boy and a girl. If work caused him to miss one of his young son's games, he would call his wife several times throughout to see how it was going.

He worked 20 years for the same company. Like many people, he lived on Long Island and worked in New York City. His office was in Midtown Manhattan.

Unfortunately for him, on September 11, 2001, Mr. Giorgetti had a meeting at the World Trade Center. That fateful morning, he died there, one of the many victims of the coordinated terrorist attacks. He was 43.

In Memoriam

Poland lost its current President Lech Kaczynski in a plane crash Saturday. According to, "The delegation was headed for the Katyn Forest near Smolensk, Russia, to honor the 22,000 Polish prisoners of war killed 70 years ago by the Soviet Union's NKVD, forerunner of the KGB."

This statue stands in Jersey City, New Jersey, across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan.

As you may know, I've moved to Alaska and started a new photo blog, "Alaska Nitty-Gritty". For your enjoyment, above is a shot taken in NYC last year around this time. Click HERE for another.
