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.
