Man in the Marble


This photo was taken on August 1, 2019 at 7:24 AM.

The location was in the entrance area of a brand new luxury hotel in the City Center District of Washington DC.

The "Take It!" happened when I spotted this fellow in the marble floor of the entrance area of this newly opened hotel. The marble they have used has lots of grain and texture to it but does not seem to yield many recognizable figures. I keep searching as I walk through the area as I am always fascinated at how through nature this ever so improbable mix can sometimes bring us something we can relate to.

Thank you for joining me as the search for more goes on.

Best regards,


PS: I also want to give a big thank you to all of you for wishing me well with my recent health issue which served to remind me to get back on track and eat healthy food and lose some weight (I am doing both now). I am feeling ever so much better. Thank you again.

    Our daughter must have found a dozen shapes in this photo. I just love these because they keep her so occupied.

    I see a witch in this one, like the Wicked Witch of the West.

    MHampy, Georgieprof and I spent about 10 minutes wondering where we had all seen this floor before during our lunch at work the other day. Took 10 minutes for one of us to realize the tile in the teachers lounge, right under our feet, was the exact same style.

    Not our finest moment!
