This photo was taken on March 10, 2021 at 5:12 AM.
The location was in the lobby of an upscale hotel in the Georgetown Section of Washington DC.
The "Take It!” came after having done a stroll down this corridor and gone past this overhead lit, elevated plant. On my way back I happend to look down and saw the shadow on the floor. As
is my usual, I took a moment to see if I could determine some of the source for the shadow and was glad to find it an easy take. For some reason - the shadow was not well defined - but the photo
taken to catch it - turned out to be quite nice as it caught the overhead light and full origin and result. Another unexpected player - is the door at the end of the corridor which being well lit
serves as a welcoming gesture at the end of the hall.
There is no deep meaning to this - just the simple pleasure of viewing the results of great design, and craft, bringing unassuming richness to what could be a quite common hallway.
Here is hoping this was a treat for you as well,

You have to wonder if they did that intentionally.

Its probably not well defined because the light is coming from an angle, so it sort of stretches the shadow.

Looks like a real plant. I forget what they are called, but I tried keeping one in the house but they kept dying. I bought a fake one and I am proud to say its still alive to this day lol.

Our kid asked where the rest of the plant is. I asked what she meant and she said the shadow is bigger than the plant, so where is the rest of it hiding. Kids are so cute.

If it wasn't for the marble flooring, it would look like a greenhouse.
