From Wikipedia: Five months after being damaged but not destroyed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Fritz Koenig's The Sphere, which once stood at the center of the plaza of the World Trade Center a few blocks away, was reinstalled in a temporary location along Eisenhower Mall in the northern section of the park. There, along with an eternal flame, it serves to memorialize the victims of 9/11. Following the completion of the National September 11 Memorial, The Sphere will be returned to its original location.
Much more than Ground Zero, this poignantly redesigned sculpture moved me with memories of that September day.
Visitors curious about the GigaPan apparatus asked me many questions about the device as happens in most busy public locations. With the security concerns in New York City, I felt it important to stay near the camera to answer these questions while the taking the shot. Like most amatuer photographers I show the GigaPan to, they planned on buying one as their next photography toy. I should probably figure out some way to receive a commission on the many sales I send GigaPan's way.
