    Wow, have you seen this?

    In the newest issue of Vanity fair (out today I think), there is a photo essay of previously unreleased photos of the twin towers on 911

    There is even an absolutely amazing Daguerrotype in the series.

    Have a look at the series here:

    Isn't this the perfect example of why we always carry a camera in our pocket?
    She: What do you do for a living?
    Me: I take pictures.
    She: Oh, you're a photographer.
    Me: No,... I'm an art thief. :)

    Is that a Daguerrotype in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?

    WTF? A "Daguerrotype"?

    Where? Are you referring to image 8 which is a poorly scanned slide that seems to have vignetting and also wasn't cropped?

    VF's name says it all - what do they consider this - a review of a friggin' fashion shoot?

    Not having seen the actual image in person, I can only rely on the photo caption which reads:

    An expert in 19th-century photographic techniques brought a wooden view camera and a daguerreotype plate to his Chelsea rooftop, capturing this three-second exposure as the south tower disappeared on the horizon

    And on the photo credit which is given to Jerry Spagnoli a modern daguerrotypist.

    Your conclusion that it is a badly scanned, uncropped slide is based on what?

    I'm not sure what this actually means...other than perhaps your blood sugar is low.

    Wow - have you seen THIS?

    Perhaps those of us who were there have greater things on our mind than voyeuristic observation?

    I can't say much about the quality from what is on the web for Vanity Fair, but the photos are still very disturbing and upsetting even after 5 years.

    A friend/aquaintence knows Jerry Spagnoli and has discussed this image with him.

    Accoring to my friend - the image was taken while the towers fell, Jery opened the shutter (removed the barrel stop) had his back to the scene while the towers fell and then turned back around when the exposure was complete. I was told that he was disorientated for a moment trying to understand the new sceneand re-orient himself.

    Kind of curious what the point is.
