This photo was taken on Saturday June 13, 2013 at 6:16 AM.
The location was in a curb side planter on Capital Hill.
The "Take It!" came as I stepped out of the car to take care of one of the routine stops we make in Capital Hill neighborhood. I had seen this root formation before and had not been able to put
an imaginative attachment to it. This time, the eye took shape, with the opposing bump looking like the over eye shape for his other side of his head. The final shaping cue was putting his nose
as emerging in the 45 degree angle of the corner in the concrete. I ask that the viewer look at this as if the frog was partially under the surface of the composted mulch and possibly
on his way to fully surfacing.
The After Take: Found me having a lot of fun showing it to a number of people on our route. It did not take any of them much time at all to join me in the interpretation of the image that
presented itself to me. Before showing the photo on the viewing screen on the camera I gave the chosen label for the picture which took out the guess work. Everyone seemed to enjoy this one
Here is hoping you were able to get a smile out of this little exercise in using one's imagination.
Wishing you a fine day.
