The date was a palindrome, meaning it was the same when read forwards and backwards. The previous palindrome date in all formats came 909 years ago on 11/11/1111. The next will come in 101 years on 12/12/2121. It is also a palindrome date of the year (33) and there are a palindrome number of days left in the year (333). Crazy.
Sometimes what I see on street is oddly different from what I've managed to capture of it in camera.
Sometimes it's the context missing from the frame that gives the picture ambiguity, spirit, and meaning.
