Granite Framing of Reflection


This photo was taken on February 28, 2015 at 9:31 AM

The location is in the Federal Triangle in Washington DC

The "Take It!"  was in one of those moments while walking, that I happened to look up, as a flash caught my eye.  The flash had come from a reflection in one of the few windows on the side of this massive building. I backed up to catch it as fully as I could and to observe if it was just sun light, or if I was lucky have an image within it.  Luck was with me - and I took several photos to catch the top of a few columns that were shown from an adjacent building.  

The After Take:  All to whom I have shown this - joined me in marveling how well this small image came out in the center of this mass of huge granite blocks. This is one of those sharing's that I sometimes will say I wish that the individual I am showing it to had been there with me to get caught up in the awe of the discovery - but am glad the camera was able to record it for us.

I take this opportunity to say the same to each of you as is mentioned to others, in the above.

All my best,

    It really does look like we are just looking through it to the other side.

    If only I could get my husband to keep our windows this clean.

    It looks like such a tiny window. Is it high up?

    Looks like it could be a pain to keep that clean.

    @Gabe I agree, looks like they just didn't put a brick in that one spot.

    I'm going to have to put together a scavenger hunt based on some of your pictures. My eighth graders would love it when they take their yearly DC trip.
