The location was on a
garage floor in the basement of a building on Georgetown
The "Take It!" was a question of how fast could I get my
camera out and position myself to capture as much of this
This is a new stop on my route and as always there are
challenges to finding a parking place that is nearby and
works with little or no chance for a ticket.
The garage in the building turned out to be a right
The parking space is three floors under the lobby which is
the location of my intent and the elevator is the
connector. Ordinarily one goes to
the elevator location almost regardless of what floor
it is on (let alone a basement) with zero expectation of
finding anything of interest. I could not believe my
eyes on how attractive the lighting effect made such a
difference in this what would ordinarily be a boring place
to stand and engage in patience while waiting for the
elevator to arrive and thus get on with the intended
I took several shots and this one was the best.
This will be a regular place for me to visit and I do not
think I will get over just how special I think it is.
The After Take: I showed this to several of those who
give me candid feed back and got an almost universal
response, that I had stumbled upon something quite
unexpected. Most were quite kind in saying that it
took my eye to see it and they thought they might not have
originally seen it in the same way. My thanks went to
each for the complement.
Here is hoping there is some " wow " in this for you too.
Wishing you my best,
