What appeared to be a single beam of light from Brooklyn resolved into two as seen from Lower Manhattan. With clouds directly overhead, the two spotlights at Ground Zero shone beams that looked like pneumatic tubes to the sky, express routes for the saintly. When the clouds would pass, the two towers of light would go up up up then bend, following the curve of the Earth. The Brooklyn Bridge was crowded with good-intentioned gawkers. One had to dodge the aim of their cameras as one might dodge a laser security system, trying to avoid stepping into the frame of a stranger's shot. Tourists posing in front of Lower Manhattan's absence.
