Staff photographer Amy Dreher snaps a lot of pictures at the World Trade Center site, documenting the construction progress of the 9/11 Memorial. Amy also trains her lens on the smaller pieces that may be overlooked with a project of this magnitude. Through “The Lens: Viewing the 9/11 Memorial,” readers of The MEMO blog can share some of the unique vantage points captured by Amy.

Breathtaking view: Construction workers stand atop the entry pavilion of the 9/11 Memorial Museum as the waterfalls of the 9/11 Memorial's enormous south reflecting pool spring to life.

The 30-foot waterfalls in the pools were successfully tested on May 13. Photographer Amy Dreher had a bird's eye view.
