These photos were taken on September 5 at 8:20 AM.
The location was in the City Center District of Washington DC.
The "Take It!" came as I passed this great plant in front of the entrance to a hotel which had undergone a complete renovation and recently opened on a limited basis due to the pandemic.
The morning sun was at an angle which allowed the leaves of this plant to cast shadows on and through the surfaces.
The randomness of it all was a very enjoyable engagement for me. I think I could have spent a lot more time with the subject in the attempt to get even more out of the opportunity.
Here is hoping you have found this to be as refreshing as I did in the initial encounter - and find more of the same as I look at the photos at this writing.
Wishing everyone my best,
