This photo was taken on February 9, 2013 at 12:23 PM.
The location was in Washington, DC.
The "Take It!" came from the symmetrics of this tree. Standing as a foreground for two street lights, with nary a leaf on it. Somehow it took on a dignity all of its
own. The sky was a wonderful blue and had just a few clouds in it, to offer some contrast. I did my best to square it all up, and take the shot.
The After Take: To those that I showed this to, there was an immediate look that came over them of understanding what attracted me to take the photo. It really does not elicit a
lot of commentary as some things that are simple, and pleasing to the eye, are just that way.
Here is hoping you are enjoying the beauty that winter can bring.
All my best,
