‘Photo Battle’ – Matt vs. Tyler Hicks (NYT)

Another thing that I imagine M. Scott and I will make a regular feature of here is the ‘photo battle’… a little thing we enjoy whenever we find two pictures, by two photographers from different sources, who have shot the same scene. Classic example: Paolo Pellegrin “vs.” Antonin Kratochvil in Basra, Iraq (2003). What are the chances that is Paolo’s shadow in the frame, too?

Anyways, just saw this image in the 9/12/08 New York Times by staffer Tyler Hicks.
Tyler Hicks/The New York Times  People remembered the attack on the World Trade Center, and its victims, in many ways. Relatives and other mourners gathered at ground zero Thursday.

I recognized that photo on the fence, I took a picture of it a few years ago. My photograph from ‘ground zero’ on the 2005 Anniversary of the 9/11 event.

Not a great ‘battle’ but something I noticed. I’m really curious if it is the exact same print on the fence as when I shot in ’05. Hard to tell when the site itself (as evidenced by how the fence looks .. no view anymore of the hole in the ground) has changed so much in the last couple of years.
