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.

Greener grass: The beautiful glade of the 9/11 Memorial extends across the plaza beneath a row of oak trees. Ron Vega, a guest photographer on The Lens, snapped the picture this morning.
