Fellow Putting on a Boot


This photograph was taken on December 8, 2021 at 12:57 PM.


The location was in the Golden Triangle Section of Washington DC.


The "Take It!" came after stepping out of my car at one of my usual stops and seeing this oil drip creation in the asphalt.  Many such drippings have no distinguishable shape to them - whereas this one was an immediately recognizable character to me.  I can only guess what made it so was the many times in my life I had to take on a similar pose while struggling to put on a pair of boots.


This one I showed to several after stating what my impression was of the image.  Having set the stage before showing it - everyone had no trouble in agreeing with the imagined view.  


I would have liked to say it was Santa - but I think that would have called for a red outfit and that just is not present - lol.


Wishing everyone my very best

    This one is much easier to spot than last weeks.

    We didn't need our kid's help for this one! Also I agree with SF1967's comment from last week's picture. Putting these in a book is a GREAT idea!!!

    That could be my shadow. Pretty close to what I look like when I put boots on.

    If you look at it sideways it sort of looks like one of the Peanuts comic kids in the wagon.

    I felt so dumb when I finally spotted the 'fellow'. I could not see him until my coworker MHampy pointed it out during our lunch. It was a "doh!' moment.

    Thank you to everyone for your thoughtful comments. I am ever so glad this one was easier to interpret. Sometimes I have to visit an image several different times - to get an imagination match up. It is all part of the fun.
    All my best to each of you.
