Young people on the Brooklyn waterfront on Sept. 11

I was reading the morning digital papers and came across an article with this photograph...

I only saw it for the first time this morning. It's a fascinating photograph. Photographer Thomas Hoepker took it, and wrote about it at Slate. My two cents, I think it's a fool's errand to try and find any kind of definitive meaning or message from the photograph. As Hoepker says, "...the picture seemed strange and surreal. It asked questions but provided no answers."
