ACCIDENTAL SUNDIAL

(c) Ray Steinberg


I was photographing the old concrete work of a mason, that took place around the 1940's to the 1950's. The masons of those days, used various size, and somewhat colorful pebbles to mix in with the concrete before pouring. The masons were also artistic, in that they drew different size circular lines into the concrere, as if to make their designs, their signature.

While I was shooting this photo, an uninvited guest, ( a squirrel ) ran across the concrete really fast, while the shutter was already pressed, and the image caught his bushy - tail. Although it was an overcast day while I was shooting, the tail did produce a shadow, and together with it's position in the design of the concrete, it reminded me of a sundial.
