The year before our daughter was born my husband and I had one last big blow-out holiday and travelled all over America again (and Canada) as we love it so much . Our relatives in Washington DC took us to the newly opened 'Newseum' which is an interactive museum of news and journalism on Pennsylvania Avenue.
It was an amazing place. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to look at the dedicated 9/11 area but I'm glad I did - I was shaky and a bit teary but I did it. Taking these photos was a truly moving experience for me.
A wall displaying 110 rectangular broadsheet newspaper front pages from 20 different countries. These were all front pages from 12th September 2001 covering the day of the 9/11 tragedy. View it large on black here.
The mangled and distorted rectangular shape of an antenna from the top of one of the twin towers. View large on black here.
This was taken a few days later in New York. It's the now battered sphere sculpture that once stood in the middle of Austin Tobin Plaza, the area between the World Trade Center towers. It's now on display with the eternal flame (circle at the bottom) in Battery Park, Manhattan.
