This set of photos was taken on December 28, 2016 at
The location was in Old Towne Alexandria,
The "Take it!" was from a catch of the image in my
peripheral vision while driving by this row house in one of the many historic sections of this charming town. I quickly enough brought the car into a parking place and walked back to take
in this ever so powerful shadow and its placement over the front door of the dwelling.
I could not help but think of the shadow as being a
sort of protector for the home.
The chance to take the second shot to include the tree
as the shadow caster was a treat.
The After Take: All to whom I have shown this
have enjoyed the strength of the image.
Here is hoping a picture like this has an effect upon
you, like it has on me, that is to look more closely at overlay shadows and the charm they can bring.
Wishing each of you a fine day,
