This set of photos was taken on September 7th at 7:08 PM.
The location was from Largo, Maryland. (a suburb of Washington DC).
The "Take It!" came after I had doubled back to catch one of my assigned route locations that I had missed, due to being caught in heavy traffic, and more important, being quite drained of energy from a long day.
The company I work for is great in many ways, including some forgiveness when on occasion a location is missed for whatever reason. It is always expected that the omission be reported immediately after it has happened, rather than anyone having to go chasing for the gap in reporting.
On this occasion, I just did not want to double back to make my reporting for the day complete. For some reason, I gathered up what it took and made my way in the crawling rush time traffic and arrived at the destination. I stepped out of the car, and was making my way toward the front door of the building, when I happened to look up.
The scattered cloud coverage matched with the late day sun, made this set of photo's an energizing hit for me. It was as if I became a Tesla with a low battery, that got a huge charge. I flew through the rest of the wind up of the day.
The After Take: This set of photos when shown, has had primarily two responses. The first is a big "Wow!" and the second is complete silence while the viewer engages in contemplation. Each of these reactions are ever so fitting.
The best of all of this, was the sense of accomplishment in having engaged in task completion. That the reward for this is something I am fortunate to be able to share with you, lends its importance to continue with the practice.
Thank you for sharing your time with this moment of cloud gazing with me.
