This photo was taken on June 15 at 7:03 am.
The location was on the back wall of a church in Downtown Washington DC.
The "Take It!" was easy. The reflection image, even though not complete was vivid enough that it caught my eye. I had not seen this image before and was quite taken with its placement. This wall
is the setting for an ongoing battle between the church and graffiti people for image ownership. On one day I will see a display of spray can art - and the next - the offending art having been
covered over with dark red ( to match the bricks ) paint. It goes back and forth - a seemingly endless battle.
Perhaps this reflection is a sign of some sort that the battle should end - or is over - and the church is to be left alone.
The After Take: Everyone that I showed it to -thought it was weird or eerie - especially in hearing my description of the battle.
This might be classified as 'cool weird.'
Hope you have some occasions to see the right side win in a graffiti fight.
All the best,

I wonder what this is reflected from.

I've looked at this tilting my head every which way, trying to make out a design. Can't hit it though....

Thanks for your comments - I have taken a few more shots of this on a different day - please take another look. As of today, the church is winning!
