Funny how certain events stay engraved in our minds forever and are triggered by visual means for the rest of our lives. I was living in New York at the time of 911 and had witnessed the whole disaster from the rooftop of my downtown Nolita office. It was horrific to say the least seeing that and experiencing it so closely. Since then, seeing a plane next to a high rise triggers a stream of unwelcome memories and emotions.

Amazing shot — but I understand what you mean about triggers. I get the same reaction too from the silliest things — we went through it in DC.
I think it is a feeling that will never go away 🙁
Thanks for your comment Jessica!
