Ten Years Later

It’s still hard to believe the events that took place ten years ago on this very day. I remember it very well. I was working at Butlins Holiday Resort, Bognor Regis at the time the attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York took place when a gentleman came running into the place I was working in at the time. I was talking to Libby Allen (now Hutchby) about something or other and he asked us if we had seen the news. We hadn’t and he proceeded to tell us that a plane had flown into one of the WTC towers in NYC. I automatically thought it was an accident, well, you would, I mean who in their right mind would do something like that delibrately. But of course, that wasn’t the case. That was when someone else came in to say that a second plane had hit the other tower, you knew it wasn’t.
That evening I watched the TV in my room in tears as I saw the horror of what had happened that fateful day. It was like watching something from a Hollywood blockbuster. It just didn’t seem real. Seeing the people leaping from windows, wondering what the desperation was they felt was when they realised they had no choice. It was heartbreaking.
And for the preceeding days afterwards where we watched in hope that they would find survivors amongst the rubble of what used to stand tall and proud. There are many conspiracies going round right now about what happened that fateful day but whatever it was, it doesn’t matter now, what matters is the innocent lives of the people who worked there and the heroes who tragically lost there lives when the towers collapsed. And for those of course who were on board the 4 ill-fated flights. You are gone but never forgotten and I hope you will forever rest in peace. You are in the hearts of all our American cousins and in each and every one of us across the world. This is my tribute to you. And I feel for the families who still feel the losses today but who have also remained strong throughout the years since they lost loved ones. My thoughts are with you and will always remain that way.

About lianehoarephotography

Well the name is Liane Hoare as you could possibly guess from the name of this website and the nature of it should tell you that I have a keen interest in photography and poetry. I am in no-way a professional photographer but one day, who knows. Any spare time I have you will find me out and about with my digital camera, which at the moment I use a Kodak Z710 which has a 12 x optical zoom so I can get close to my subjects without getting too close. I try to get out as much and as often as possible, whatever the weather. I go to Carshalton Ponds in Surrey on a regular basis, I have a good rappor with the squirrels there. No matter where I go though I take my camera out with me. You'll find photos on here from Manchester, Kent, Caterham, Cardiff, Brighton and London. Animals are my favourite subjects, I try to get snaps of squirrels, birds and even pets belonging to friends and family. You could say that nature is where I am most comfortable. I have only really shown a keen interest in photography for about two years now since I got the Kodak Z710, before I just used to take a little 3 x digital zoom camera out with me when I went out with friends - as you do. Now it has become a hobby I would like to turn into a career. I try to enter photography competitions when I can nowadays and recently entered into one on the National Trust, I'll do anything to get noticed now - within reason of course. With regards to poetry, I've been writing that for over 10 years now. In the past I used to write things down, put it away and forget about it, until one day someone found some, read it and told me to do something with them. I started off by posting them on Facebook a few months ago, just to see what people thought and I was needless to say surprised by the comments. To me it's always been a very personal thing, something that I would keep to myself as I thought that other people would shun or laugh at it, I didn't expect people to say they actually thought it was good. That's when I decided to put together this website. Combined with my photos I feel it gives a good insight to the person I am and who I am capable of being and hopefully you will feel the same way. In the future I would like to be a professional photographer, and writer come to that. My ultimate goal is to live in California and be set up with my own business in said fields. And I hope that one day I could make my dream a reality. I've since upgraded to an EOS Canon 100d DSLR camera and have never looked back. Best thing I ever did!
