Quick Shot: Reflection of War

I recently visited the National World War I Memorial in Kansas City. During this visit, I found myself drawn to a glass rooftop at the base of the memorial (it was the roof for the museum below the memorial). The shiny glass reflected the memorial beautifully, so I took two photographs to capture that reflection.

The first shot was taken during the day and highlights the reflection of the inscription at the base of the tower. The second photo was taken at dusk, when the lights on the tower illuminated the scene. I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I thought I'd post them both and let you pick! 

Which of these two shots do you like more? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Quick Shot: WWI Memorial

Last weekend I had a chance to explore the World War I Memorial in Kansas City. The memorial was built in the 1920s to commemorate those Americans who served and features a large monument and a wonderful museum.  

The weather for this trip was perfect - although a little hot, there was a nice breeze and some light clouds in the sky. I knew the weather would be perfect for Black and White photography and used my polarizer filter to ensure I gave the sky as much contrast as possible.

I'll be posting a variety of Quick Shots from the World War I Memorial in the news few days. Today's shot is an overview of the memorial from the top (directly over the museum), but stay tuned to see a bunch of other cool shots soon!
