Its the Small Stuff



This set of photos was taken on Tuesday November 22, 2016 at 8:32 AM.

The location was at the front door of my home, in Bethesda, Maryland.

The "Take It!" came as I was loading my car to be about the business of doing my short day of information gathering.  I had just returned to the front door and was about to reach for the door knob to the storm door, when I saw this small shadow.  That it fit within the confines of the concave outer front surface of the knob was, to me, a marvel. 


The gathering of variables to achieve this point in time, matched with subject, is the source for a small boggling of the mind.  

The After Take: Was a lot of fun. I showed this to more people than I usually do, as it was a day that did not quite have the urgency attached to it. I played a short game of it, showing the first photo by itself and asking for some to guess the source of the shadow.  None were able to guess what brought it about, but all thought what was caught in the photo was cool. Not being one who likes suspense drawn way out,  in short order, the second shot was shown. All joined me, in the marvel of this very simple, and yet wonderful, bit of candy for the mind.

Here is hoping something similar happens for you in your life.  That so many of us carry phones with cameras in them, provides opportunity for not only me, but others to capture and share such moments with others.  It is through sharing these kind of joys, that life is more fulfilling.
Wishing you my best,

    It looks like you caught a ribbon blowing in the wind at the exact right moment it curled.

    I got a good chuckle from the note left for the mailman. We have something similar here for situations when the weather calls for it.

    Great catch with the railing in the door knob. Perfect timing!
