Shadow Power House


This set of photos was taken on April 11, 2015 at 2:48 PM

The location was Crystal City, Virginia.

The "Take It!"  has come from observing the wonderful shadows that are formed on this triplex from the tree that stands in front of the building.  This set of shots came at a time of day that seemed to capture a full range of vertical and horizontal shadows.  

I sometimes wonder if living where such shadows grace your dwelling if there are some special powers that confer upon those who are occupying the structure at the time they appear.   Even more, could there even be a type of karma that is generated and stored in the building for residents to unknowingly have passed along to them.

The After Take: To all that I have shown these photos to, there has been a consensus that the shadow effect is indeed special.  

Here is hoping you may live in a structure that has friendly shadows cast upon it, and as such they bring joy to you and yours.

Wishing you the best,

    Man it looks like a bunch of cracks in the house, like an earthquake hit it.

    It has an almost ominous look to it. Once the leaves fill out I bet it won't look as scary.

    That house is almost a perfect square.

    The homeowners have to love that tree during the summer. iT looks like it casts just the right amount of shade over those windows when it has some green on it.
