' Morning Sun Shadow '
This photo was taken on October 30th, 2019 at 8:23 AM.
The location was in the NW section of Washington DC
The "Take It!" came as I was about to get into my car to depart for
my next stop on my route routine. What caught my eye was the
composition of green holly along with the strange bark of the
trees, matched up with the delicate shadow of branches which still
had leaves which were cast as shadows upon this expanse of
plain brick wall which was under a set of windows.
I spent a few moments taking additional photos in this area and
found the experience to be calming. We are living in a hectic
time and when settings like this come along I do my best to take a
few moments to savor them.
Here is hoping each of you occasion upon some unexpected place like
this, and take some time to enjoy it.
Wishing everyone my best,
PS. We have had some cold introduction days to winter and I can say
the Hat Hunting Season has officially opened for me with the
bagging of two knit hats within the week. I have almost
perfected the process of spotting a hat in the street and if there
is the right amount of space - make a loop in my car and return at
a slow speed with my car door partially open and do a lean out when
stopped over the hat and pick it up - without ever leaving the seat
of the car. The hat is brought in my my hand and
tossed upon the driver,s side floor under my legs - and I drive off
- as it nothing had happened. There have possibly been some
witnesses to this bit of retrievership - but if so - I have not
seen anyone do a double take as an observer. But, then, I am
so busy making certain to do the pass as safely as I can, that I
have no time to observer for observers - lol.
I have to confess the above is a game I get a big annual kick out
