Thomas Hoepkers 911

I saw this picture today of the September 11 attack and was fascinated by it. I quess its become pretty well known since but id never seen it. It was taken by Thomas Hoepker who didn’t publish it for four years as he thought it was to shocking. It shows young people watching the smoke from the a Brooklyn water front, like a normal day. Maybe they went to get a better view of the unfolding events, its unlikely they had just stopped for breakfast, but i dont know.
