Watching Over the Wall

One of the best ways to become a better photographer is spending time with other photographers. On a photo walk with a photobug friend, he stepped behind this statue at the entrance of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall and started taking pictures. Intrigued by his approach, I joined him behind The Three Servicemen Statue and saw what he saw. The soldiers were looking towards the Wall. From this perspective, it seems as if they are watching over and guarding the names inscribed on the memorial wall's surface. Photography excursions with friends generates new ways of seeing subjects. So glad I followed his cue and photographed this memorial in a total different way.
