This photo was taken on September 12, 2019 at 7:21 AM.
The location was in Downtown Washington DC.
The "Take It!" came from how vivid the shadow was cast from the early
morning sun onto the clean white side of the parked delivery truck at the
edge of this intersection.
I had been sitting at the intersection waiting for the light to change in
my favor - and for reasons I did not know at the time - this image caught
my eye. In retrospect - it was telling of the sun rising just a
little bit later as the summer season is ending and while this is a
favorite time of day for me, it also means I am getting close to having
completed 3/4 of my five times a week part time job. I start very early in
the morning to avoid both the vehicular as well as the pedestrian traffic
generated in the early rush hours. I finish just as things are getting
clogged up and tempers are short.
It is very satisfying to be driving out of town, on my way home, and doing
so against traffic. It is one of the big reasons I have been able to
hold onto and even enjoy doing this for 21 years. The other is without
question - the fun of the regular interactions I have had with the many
people who are participants in the hospitality business.
Thanks for sharing in my muse.
Here is hoping you too enjoy your working endeavors.
