Chris --great creation Chris! I was in my office on 9/11 (the building over the ferry terminal --right side of picture). That day will be with me forever.

Congrats on your sale Chris! What a wonderful vintage piece. So wonderful to see the Towers.I'll never forget the first time I went to NYC a few months after 9/11, seeing that empty skyline driving in made us all cry. This is a great tribute! L/F

Chris Lord replied:

Being an oldster is useful sometimes as it gives me a huge backlog of images to go back to. This one has been a permanent favorite of mine and has seen versions through all kinds of tech changes over the years. Happy you liked this version. Thank you. I miss these building too. I especially enjoyed going up to the open roof and spending time looking out over the city. It was so quiet and peaceful up there. I took their destruction as a personal affront. Cheers

Congrats on your sale, Chris!

Congratulations on your Art sale!

Chris Lord replied:

One of the advantages of being an oldtimer is that you can go back to the past and resurrect things! :-) Glad you enjoyed this one Glenn, thanks very much. Cheers

Congrats, Chris. I saw your G+ post about this, and came to comment.

July 27th, 2018

I love my purchase of this beautiful work of art!Will be purchesing more of this wonderful artists work in the future.

July 22nd, 2018

I bought this as a gift. I love it! Hope the receiver loves it too!

July 19th, 2018

Wow - I didn't realise it was going to be that big! It's a gift for a young member of the family - I think he'll be thrilled as he's a tractor fanatic at 6 years old. A practical gift too. The towel has a smoother upper side so it'll be more comfortable to sit on at the beach. It seems to have a thick absorbent power so no usual skinny beach towel.

very nice, love the colour not keen on the white tastle border but i like it, i'm going to use it as blanket for my hamock,

April 17th, 2018

Perfect gift for my college niece!!! They love to have their towels for spring break! Highly recommend. I recently bought round beach towels at a major retailer. The quality from fineartamerica far surpasses it! The artwork on the towel is vibrant and attractive. Love it!

Artist's Description

About Chris Lord

Chris Lord

My name is Chris Lord and I am the Head Pixie and Pixel Pusher at Pixielated Pixels. I am British born and bred but New York City based and I first picked up a camera almost 50 years ago. After all those years I am finally happy creating the images I always dreamed of.

Intense and powerful color and a somewhat surreal take on reality is the way my mind works and I enjoy producing images to match. "Reality is a somewhat...
