Along South Broadway, in Englewood CO.
I felt the solemnity of the location, the near-sacred aura of Ground Zero, coupled with the somewhat lacy reflections of nearby buildings juxtaposed with the strong lines of the memorial structure was poorly served by a riot of tourist color. The gathered crowds retreat into the background when rendered in black and white, while the names stand starkly front and center.
I’m glad to have shot this after Moab. I feel I did it much more justice than I might have otherwise.
Another crop, this with more of that beautifully manicured lawn in the foreground.
Usually I have an idea of how best to crop a shot, but this one I’m not sure about. I think I like the broader crop for its context. Thoughts?
