So I walk past the much debated "World Trade Center Mosque" on my way to and from work daily. I was walking home night before last and noticed that for the first time the doors were open. Not only were they open but there seemed to be a crowd and news crews gathering out front and I was camera less...

Anyway I figured that even if I couldn't snap pics I could look around and take notes. There was a wily old guy writing on the ground in color chalk and passing out literature. I went back yesterday evening and took some pics, this time the old guy:



This time the old guy had some fellow protesters with him:


I took video too...I got him to explain what he was doing out there and what he supported. The guy talked my poor 8gb card full :( I also feel like a boob for leaving the shotgun mic at the studio.

Oh yea, someone had said that this building over-looks the WTC site....


Really? Cause the view from the stairs says otherwise.

Thanks for looking. (external link)"I think that there will be people disappointed in any camera short of the one that summons the ghost of Ansel Adams to come and press the shutter button for them." -lazer-jock
