Cloud Pleaser


This set of photos was taken on November 2, 2013 at 9:20 AM.
The location was in Washington DC at the Aerospace Museum .
The "Take It!" came as we drove by the museum as we usually do, but this time it was a little later in the day, thus the position of the sun set up the casting of a shadow from a tree that is in a roof top planter onto the wall of another section of the building. The above featured photo seems to best capture this shadow which was the original intent of the stop.  
What happened next was simply amazing. I often take numerous shots and feature what I think is the best and many times include some of the others just to share some context and comparison.  I took some shots to show the full picture and low and behold - after I got a chance to look at them later - there was a cloud formation above the subject that was a show of its own.
The After Take: To those I have shown this set of photos, I have explained what happened and all agree - the original intent was very well taken care of - and the after thought shot - stole the show.   
This is the sort of rare thing that adds such extra pleasure for me to be engaged in this entire venture. I hope this helps fill your post halloween eye candy bowl as it has mine.
Wishing you all the best,

    Is that a tree on the roof? Kind of odd.

    Great shots outside of a museum filled with such huge pieces of Americana. I've had the privilege of taking students there each year, and I can always learn something new.

    Gabe strange as it may seem I am starting to see more trees being included in roof top situations. I think it is a powerful way to let everyone know that looks at the building that green programs are being practiced within. Some of the roof top gardens are incredible. I was lucky to catch this shadow to share.

    Teri, You are one of the lucky ones to be able to be with young minds as they observe the past and live in the present. The availability of views of the future is becoming ever so much more available I am certain your students highly value your thoughtful approach.
