These photos were taken from the hillside in Inwood Hill Park. The park paths were busier than I have ever seen them. It is so sad that it took something like this for many people to utilize this beautiful space and for me to feel safe enough to walk there alone. As I was shooting, I could not help but watch the photojournalists. I was impressed by how they much helped each other out, pointing out shots and sharing information, as the events unfolded. I was also struck by how respectful and not jaded they were. One told me this is why he never picks a fight with his girlfriend in the morning. He said his job has taught him that you can leave the house in the morning and never come home.
