The Oklahoma City National Memorial is the largest memorial of its kind in the United States. It honors the victims, survivors, rescuers, and all who were changed by the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995.

Straight shot out of my NikonD200.

    I remember that whole mess back in the day. :-/
    As with most other distance shots, you make the people
    seem like ants & the structures enormous! It’s clearly a
    Vanzella thing, nobody else does it. (I mean, I’m sure somebody
    out there does, but I don’t remember ever seeing it like you
    do it.) That’s what I mean. :)

    God, this is just so beautiful, Paul. Perfect, as always. I’ve only ever seen photos of this memorial with water on the ground – I’ve wondered if the water is part of the memorial?

  • …yes it is – a shallow reflecting pool, you just can’t go wrong shooting this… it’s all there in front of you… thank you.
