Mirror Mirror that is the Wall, Who is the Fairest of them All

This photo was taken on November 15, 2014 at 9:09 AM

The location was in the east side of the Museum for the American Indians in Washington DC on the National Mall

The "Take It!" came from yet another drive by this magnificent Tree and finding the sun at just the right place to offer up a shadow on the side of the building that captures just about as much as it can of the tree as it stands in the foreground.

The After Take:  I have shown this photo to several and all seem to be quite impressed with the simplicity that it represents and yet upon looking at it for not that long a time - many details make themselves known.

We chose to make this photo the banner for Winter 2014, as well as a smaller version, the front of the business cards. I hope you will enjoy looking at this magnificent tree as we go through this season with all its splendors.

Wishing you my very best,


PS:  I will admit to being ever so attracted to this tree.  It is complex in its branch configuration with their many twists and turns - but simple, as it all comes together, as this photo so easily shows.

    That is such a wonderful museum. I have mentioned this before but our school takes the 8th grade class to DC every year and I am one of the chaperons. While we haven't been in that museum in the last few trips, I do have very fond memories of it.
