The Houston Police Officer Memorial is a public recognition of the sacrifices made by police officers as they carry out their duties and, in particular, those who have died in the line of duty.  The central pyramid rises 12 ½ feet above ground level, and the four outer pyramids are inverted to sink 12 feet into the ground. Every pyramid base is 40 feet square.

The night we visited there, it was bathed in very bright blue lights from tall poles on the four corners. It made any kind of shot from a distance pretty difficult. I had to hide the light opposite of me behind the Memorial itself. The challenge here was balancing the brightness of the structure with the skyline of Houston in the background. The Memorial is located close to Eleanor Tinsley Park on Memorial Drive. If you’re lucky, you can get one of the only four parking spots available.
