World War II Memorial

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.

    A few summers ago, I was visiting family in Kansas City and toured the World War I memorial; apparently one of the few and the country’s largest. Quite fascinating. A terrific night shot, BTW.

    An excellent shot. I too had trouble deciding where to take photos on the Mall. I drove right past this one to get to the Vietnam Memorial for a rainy night shot, , but now wish I had divided my time.
