Here are two shots of the Portland, Oregon Vietnam Memorial. The entrance path passes under the bridge past a small fountain and a plaque. The spiral path winds up and around the central garden, passing over the bridge and leading to a series of black marble walls listing Oregon residents lost in the war and the year of their loss. The walls are in the same style as the Washington, D.C. memorial. You can see one of the walls in the center right portion of the second photo. These are scanned 35mm negatives.

Incidentally, I served in the US Navy aboard the USS Long Beach CGN9 during the Vietnam conflict and made two tours in the Tonkin Gulf.

Dude, I sooo like the second one. Off center, the circles don't look so 'plastic' as they would from the 'front' or from above. Nice eye, the curvature of the hillside adds up to the whole concentric thing, I really do think you nailed the angle right on that one! -- That's not to say I don't like the first one, though. It's just that #2 *really* does it for me!
