Yet Another "Eye Catcher"


These photos were taken on July 2, 2019 at 9:45 AM.

The location was in the front driveway of a new mega hotel in Washington DC.

The "Take It!” came when I returned to this drive area to pick up my car after having made my necessary visit to this really cool new hotel. I park in front of this hotel on a regular basis, so have gotten to know almost all of the attendants and have a fun relationship with them. On this day. there was a new person on duty and I did my usual thing of presenting him with a business card for this web site and launched into a brief explanation of what he could expect to see on the site.  While in the middle of this brief intro - I happened to look down at the hood of the car we were standing next to and saw the ever so random reflection of the glass awning above the driveway reflected in the paint of the hood of this recently rained on luxury car.  Amazingly enough some of the reflection was of the framing for the above glass and through pure chance this happened to line up fairly well with some of the contours stamped into the hood of the car to give the vehicle an ever so brief art work application.

I took out my camera, and took a photo of the hood of the car - and resumed my conversation with my new acquaintance by stating that the vision in the hood of the car was typical of what he would find on the web site.  With that - he looked down at the hood and proclaimed it to be "Amazing" to which I readily agreed and said I could not describe it any better. We parted as my car was available with him stating he would definitely take a look at the site - for which I thanked him.

Not every presentation of the web site business card has this cool of a presentation - but through the course of time, Taylor has told me we have reached a fairly steady viewer ship of over 600 for which I am both astounded and grateful.   

So it is with sincere thanks to each of you that I keep looking for the unusual as well as the common to bring to our awareness and whenever possible our amusement and on rare occasion our education.

Best regards,


PS: A special thank you to those who write in comments, for many times, it is this feedback that is as much fun as having taken the photo.

    We love leaving comments, thank you for making them available. The internet can be such a negative space, I think I’d be nervous to allow people to leave comments.

    It really does line up well with the shape of the car.
