Fireman Waving

This photograph is one of a series of thirteen taken during the full moon of April 2004 in Northampton, MA. It is especially dear to us because Mr. Williams is a retired firefighter from Brooklyn, N.Y. He had retired from Squad One on Union Street in Park Slope just a few years before the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center. Tragically half of his squad was killed in the first tower; we were informed of eight of the deaths by eleven o'clock that evening. We believe the firefighter in this photograph is letting us know that he lives on.
