  4. Matt, we know you’re great at capturing a moment, but I had no idea your were capable of predicting the future as well.

    I’m guessing you had a pretty eerie feeling after rediscovering this gem in your collection. Foreshadowing at it’s best.

    • It is strange, but I always considered “Ground Zero” to be the Empire State Building from the 1964 classic “Fail Safe”
      and was horrified when it became an everyday part of our vocabulary in 2001

      This picture was also very much related to the future when I took it:

      Thanks Greg!
