Shadows Bring Three Steps Special Flair


This photo was taken on October 24, 2018 at 9:12 AM.

The location was at the front entrance of a large relatively new hotel next to the Convention Center in Washington DC.

The "Take It!" came without a second of hesitation. It really was a matter of collecting myself after first taking in the simple beauty of what I was seeing, this was closely matched up with my realizing my good fortune to be at the right place at the right time. The timing was critical as the position of the sun was the magic per chance factor along with it being a clear sky to bring the match up and thus this image.

The After take: All that I have shown this to have marveled at the beauty in how everything has come together. 

I use this set of three steps almost every time I approach this hotel which is five days a week. Since having taken this photo have placed them in a new category in my mind, beyond being the means to bring me to a different level - they are now also viewed as "uplifting.”

I am thinking of applying for membership in the shadow catching society (if there is one - lol).

Wishing each of you a fine day,

    There's almost a sense of geometry to it.

    Maybe its because I'm watching football as I look at this photo on my laptop, but I see goal posts in the shadows.

    I would have guessed this was a sunset photo if I didn't see the time of day.
