I’m going to be honest here and say that I feel like I failed to properly document this event. There are two reasons for that. Firstly because I found it incredibly hard to lift up my camera and point it at people who were there to remember their dead friends and family. Secondly because I decided to go and watch the service and 200mm just wasn’t enough to get the shots I wanted. I felt very small, like everyone was watching me every time I lifted up my camera. The shutter on my camera was the loudest sound in the world yesterday. However by the end I realised why I was there, and by that time it was too late to get any good photos. I was there to show how much of an impact this event has had even 19 years on. I should have got the photo of people crying because it shows how they’ve been affected. I didn’t want to intrude though, and when you’re standing next to someone crying the last thing you want to do is take their photo no matter how good the shot would be. I’m not quite there yet as a real photojournalist it seems.
