Ah I see ... thank you guys for the explanation .. now I get the whole picture and was indeed confused by the tribute lights and the memorial pools on the other side.

Wish there were such tribute lights from the middle center of the pools too or at least lit pools in different colors or pools full of those flickering lights like on Eifel Tower that will glitter in water and guess its effect will be dazzlingly pretty especially at night ...

If I could add one thing to the whole design, I would have implemented 3000 of such flickering lights in the pools each carrying the name of all those who passed away as to always shine and be alive.

I rented a 2X adapter for my 200mm lens. So far so good. I may not have to buy a whole new one.
