Title: The Bergen County Veterans' Circle of Honor at the BC Courthouse
Post by: BLeafe on December 30, 2016, 09:45:07 PM
At the halfway point of my Main St walk (and back) on Christmas, I photographed the Veterans' Circle of Honor at the Bergen County Courthouse. Because it was all in shadow and the background was blazing with reflected sunlight - the wrong time of day to shoot this - I could not get a usable shot of all 6 of the monuments at once, so I shot them individually and PhotoShopped them all together in 2 rows of 3 each.

The back of each monument shows the aircraft that is most-associated with that particular war. I put that together in reverse order from how I shot them, so the two composites would match up. The bottom part of the second image is actually the top part of the same monument, but taken from the back of it (and higher above it).

This link gives more information about the site and shows the monuments all lined up in one shot:
