By coincidence, Moore selected this image as one of his best 50 photographs, before 9/11. He'd taken it as a snapshot from his car, while stuck in traffic. Looking across to the Battery, I noticed the light reflecting off the World Trade Center towers. Narrow columns of intense light were framed by structures closer to the camera à recognizing such an image comes from years of experience.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
