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
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
