My wife and I visited this memorial at night to work on some night photography. This memorial is photogenic, beautifully designed, well lit and felt "grand." We'd visited a couple of years ago during the day during the winter, and it was crowded and felt sort of sterile; however, we got a different feeling on this most recent visit. At night it is less crowded, the memorial is lit up, and because it was summer, the fountains were on. While my wife took photos, I basked in the peace and tranquility of the monument and the moment. I thought about that this memorializes the worst and bloodiest war in world history, and juxtaposition of death and war with the serenity of the memorial was very well done. I thought that after the war many people must have felt what this memorial instills in its visitors: peace, gratitude and hope for a better world. It's a great memorial to visit and reflect, especially after the sun goes down.
