The location was on the edge of a small mall in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
The "Take It!" came from seeing these trees under such bright illumination that the blossoms almost looked like they were basking in day time sun light. Not so ! the clock told me - and the
black upper border served as confirmation.
The After Take: To the few that I have shown this to - they all agreed that it was a cool picture of blossoming trees of
which we have oodles of at this time of year. They could not discern what was so different about this shot. When I told them it was that there was not the usual blue sky background -
because the shot had been taken at night - it was an " A hah " moment that was shared by me all over again.
Every once in a while we are offered a picture of the usual in a different fashion. With luck we can see what may
be a subtle, or in this instance, a huge difference.
