This set of photos was taken on June 2015 in the AM.
The location was in the lobby of a modestly priced hotel in Rockville, Maryland.
The "Take It!" came from my having my usual downward viewing while doing a lot of my walking. I am a careful walker as have taken a few falls in the fairly recent past from situations that

sometimes ability to see things comes from. All I know, is that it is a gift that I have no idea of how long it will last, and it seems best to share of much of it as I can.
Life is very good.
All the best to you,
