This photo was taken on October 20, 2012 at 1:33 pm.
The location was in Alexandria, Virginia.
The "Take It!" came from one of those moments when hearing a loud noise - looking to find the source if possible. Not only was the creation of
this noise visible - but was front and not quite center on this great looking court house. I have rarely seen a building get a scrubbing - but this one was getting its top edge cleaned. The
overspray almost seems to follow the corner which is part of the fun of this photo.
The After Take: This picture seemed to gather impact as I showed it to people. That there are so many right angle edges both
forward and recessed be came a big part of the strength of the photo. Simple in shape but made a bit more complex by the multitude of them. That the sun was at just the right position to
cast shadows off the edges made it even more impactful.
Here is hoping there are similar programs where you live to keep buildings in good shape. We see so many pictures of cities where there
are not provisions for this that viewing this was refreshing.
Thanks for joining us for the current photo presentation. You are cordially invited to return Tuesday, December 25th for a new picture that we
hope you will enjoy.
All the very best,
