Shadow Stopper


This photo was taken on March 7, 2020 at 10:03 AM.

The location was in a smaller, very staff friendly hotel in Largo, Maryland.

The "Take It!” came as I was on my usual walk in a corridor which borders the meeting rooms and has windowed alcoves on the opposite side of the rooms.  There are a set of triangular shaped window that are on the sloped roofs of these alcoves which permit sunlight to filter into the area which is sometimes used for lounge furniture or in this case an easel promoting a hotel program.

It was just such an easel display which caught the sun to produce the shadow on the floor of the promotion and due to the time of day - the sun helped produce a warping of the rectangle of the sign to give a diamond like shape to be superimposed upon a triangle of sorts made up of tiles on the floor.  

High art this is not - but a very cool coming together of a number of factors to produce a bit of momentary eye candy.

Wishing everyone my very best,

    I thought, maybe they are displaying art in the hotel. Looks like an ad for something instead.

    Those windows are interesting to say the least.

    It kinda looks like they don't even have lights on. Just letting the sun light the room.

    These pictures are quite literally a study of angles.
