I am composing a book of images of patriotism and American pride taken by me on a driving trip across the US. I left on 9/11 and was gone for 7 weeks. The photos are great. However, I need a good photo to put at the beginning that depicts the tragedy of the event. I really would like to use your NYC fighter looking up at the remains of the World Trade Center on Sept 13. However, I need a high resolution jpg if this is to work. Can you provide this? Is there a fee? It will be a positive, heartwarming take on the way everyday Americans showed their pride of country and flag.
Please advise. Dr. Carole Talan

Working on a 9/11 Tribute section in our newspaper, could we get the first photo "10 more volunteers" at a higher resolution?

Hi sookietex,
I already left a detailed message and request to you yesterday, but somehow it has not appeared here?!?! Anyway, I am an Aussie, and I re-posted a poem I wrote, a week after the attack in 2001, about 911 on one of my sites. While looking for an image I came across your work, which is hauntingly beautiful. So, I put one of your images with my poem, I have properly credited you and linked back here. cheers, fog.

Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oi!Oi!Oi! Hi fog. Don't know what happened to your initial message---lost somewhere in cyber-space i guess. Anyway thanks for stopping by and including our site's WTC pic with your poem.

I am "The Bionic Man" and I have the ability to lift the weight of both of the twin towers at the same time. If America knew about this before it happened, then why didn't they call me to help. The Terrorists planned this out and executed their plan to kill Americans. Now, we need to kill all of them.
