These photos were taken on September 1, 2014 at 4:37 PM
The location was in the parking lot of a hotel near Laurel, Maryland.
The "Take It!" came from having just come outside into the bright sun light after a brief rain and looking at the puddles spread throughout the asphalt parking lot. Each puddle had some
sort of reflection coming up off of it for the sun was in full force along with the remaining clouds. I further looked and walked about to see if there might be a distinguishable shape
from a cloud that might be reflected in the water of a puddle. I was almost spellbound enough to not reach for my camera in seeing the head of a fox or coyote in this puddle. By
the time I was able to focus in and get the puddle shot lined up with proper framing I almost lost all of the recognizable shape in the overhead cloud. As you can see from the below
photo, I lost part of the ears and some of the definition of the head in general before I could collect the shot.
The After Take: Everyone was quite amused at this set of photos which reminded most of them of the cartoon about " The roadrunner and the Coyote." Some even admitted to the cartoon as
being one that they had watched many, many, times over as a young child. It was from this later set of repetitive viewers that I got the biggest reaction from.
One of the great joys from photography is the sharing of the catch and waiting for the reaction. This reaction can be the start of many enjoyable stories and or just simple comments.
Thanks for taking time to join in on viewing some of my world.
All the best to you,
