Photographer's Note

For anyone not familiar with Boston/Quincy market, there is a Holocaust Memorial nearby which consists of 6 Square Glass Pillars that have 6 million numbers etched into it for the Jews which died during the Holocaust. You walk through them and can view the numbers, etc. When I was there, I was relaxing nearby the memorial when I saw this woman stop...I quickly grabbed my camera, focused on the Glass plate with the numbers (thus why she is out of focus) and shot away. Took 2 photos but I like this one best.

Cropped slightly in PS and adjusted color. Was thinking about making it B/W but decided to go with color instead. Hope you all like it! :o)

Ok...I just checked the web and found some more information on the memorial:

At night, its six 50-ft-high glass-and-steel towers glow like ghosts who vow never to forget. During the day, the monument seems at odds with the 18th-century streetscape of Blackstone Square behind it. Shoehorned into the north end of Union Park, the Holocaust Memorial is the work of Stanley Saitowitz, whose design was selected through an international competition; the finished memorial was dedicated in 1995. Recollections by Holocaust survivors are set into the glass-and-granite walls; the upper levels of the towers are etched with 6 million numbers in random sequence, symbolizing the Jewish victims of the Nazi horror. Manufactured steam from grates in the granite base makes for a particularly haunting scene after dark.
