The location was at the drive in entrance of a luxury hotel in the Georgetown section of Washington D.C.
The "Take It!" came after a look twice at a brick column in the front part of the entrance. There was something that just did not look right. I had made this observation while parking
the car next to the column and got out of my vehicle to take a closer look. What became apparent very quickly was the difference in the size of the bricks.
I had never seen something like this done before. What had been put together was a combination of two panels of photographs of bricks which were bolted on to the wall to cover a hole in the
original brick work while doing some repairs. Rather than have a gaping hole - this was the clever temporary answer. While I can easily imagine most who looked at this bit of cover up -
would not have realized what they were looking at - and moved on - being none the wiser. We discovered this ruse because of a few brick holes on the sides - that had not been covered.
I departed with a big measure of admiration for the creativity put into place.
I will be watching to see when they finish the job - just how well they are able to match up the bricks used to actually fill the hole.
One never knows where the fun will show up - lol
