These photos were taken at Ground Zero, the World Trade Center
site in New York, on September 13, 2001.
They were taken by someone named "Ed" who was allowed into the
area by a member of the emergency response crew, at a time when
all civilians -- including most journalists -- were forbidden to
enter the area. As a result, these photos are just about the
only close-ups ever taken of the World Trade Center site so soon
after the 9/11 attacks.
