This shot was taken on August 13, 2013 at 7:55 AM.
The location was on the paving blocks outside a large office building in Washington DC,
The "Take It!" came from my habit of looking down when I walk. It had rained for a brief time earlier and the water was beginning to evaporate from the pavers I was stepping on as I
made my way into the building. The shape of a head of a dog appeared on one of the blocks and I quickly snapped a shot of it. When I came back out of the building, most of the
wetness was gone and the shape along with it.
The After Take: To those I showed this picture to - all could see the likeness to a dog. I spoke with everyone about how sometimes shapes appear in the most unlikely places. We
all agreed that the game of seeing shapes in clouds is a game most of us never get tired of - no matter how old we get.
I think we may have a yet another reason to "watch our step."
Wishing everyone, safe and sure footsteps, especially after the rain.
