"The Wall That Heals" - Vietnam War Memorial Moving Wall

July 09, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Today I was on assignment to cover the opening of the "Wall That Heals" more commonly known as the Vietnam War Memorial Moving Wall. It is a replica of the granite Vietnam War Memorial in Washington D.C. It was an honor to be there and to honor the memory of the 12 people from Cape Ann that lost their lives for us in Vietnam. I got some good images but the memorial is available to the public on a 24/7 basis with lights above the names. I knew dusk was the best time to go as the lights would be on. So on the way home I stopped by for a look and brought the Leica M-P 240 and the Leica 35 Summicron with me. This camera is the ultimate stealth camera. I was able to photograph in near silence as this couple studied the memorial after they found the name they were looking for. It is such a personal thing for these Vets as they come back and honor friends or relatives that have fallen for us. It was moving for me to see and I know you will feel the same as you see the image below.
