This photo was taken on January 9, 2018 at 9:45
The location was in an intersection of busy streets in the
Georgetown section of Washington DC.
The "Take It!" came from the near shock of seeing this
near perfect bow in the middle of a cross walk at a busy downtown intersection.
Maybe it was how fresh to bow looked - as if it had just
been dropped and had not suffered being run over by a bunch of cars whose drivers could not see it in time to avoid it. The perfection of the edges of the bow contrasted with the stones
in the off setting asphalt also served to draw in my attention.
The After Take: To the few I showed this to I had to
explain that it was more the contrast of colors and surfaces than anything else that caught my eye and called for the photo. That seemed to satisfy the question, but just barely -
lol. I must say, the photo was taken very much on the fly as the pedestrian signal red hand had gone up, warning all to get out of the street.
I suppose this could also be spoken of as lost innocence,
given the setting and the time of day I happened upon it.
Best wishes to everyone.
