These photos were taken on April 23, 2021 at 6:13 PM.
The location was from my back porch at my home in Beltsville, Maryland.
The "Take It!" came as I was on my way out the back door to bring in the trash cans at the end of a busy day. For some reason I happened to look just a little bit further than the then
location of the empty trash cans and saw the shadow of the tree projected into the street.
I think what grabbed me was the almost perfect symmetry of the shadow from the tree. I then realized I was looking at an image I had best go back into the house and grab my camera - because
the sun was not going to stay in the same position to allow this shot to be available for much longer. Thankfully - I was able to make the lucky catch and be able to share it with all of
I do my best to constantly be looking at as much as I can because I find being aware of my surroundings is what I have enjoyed as a big part of the joy of living. To be able to include the
capture of some of these surroundings via photography is like icing on the cake.
Wishing everyone my very best,
