As we were walking around the Reflection Pool in Washington D.C., we came upon the World War II Memorial. I must be living under a rock, because I didn’t even know we had a memorial for WWII. It was raining and four of us were huddled below two under-sized umbrellas, so it wasn’t exactly a great condition for photography. You can get some beautiful shots with reflections and rain, if you are prepared. We weren’t.
I shot what I could, then we had to move on, not knowing when the rain would stop. This is one memorial I would enjoy returning to and spend time shooting. I know I missed much of it, as well as the Vietnam Wall, which I was looking forward to seeing. Between the rain, the dark and the construction on the Reflection Pool, we didn’t even see it. Sounds like a good enough reason to go back.
