    • Thanks Renee… sometimes take really zooming in on a subject like this to get a different perspective!

    Love how the close-up focus on dead brown leaves turns them into a thing of beauty! Causes us to pause and examine an everyday bit of something thats almost detritus and really see it.

  5. Thank you Ivy! Yes – never really imagined being able to mediate on a cluster of dried/dead leaves, but this photo just captured my attention last night when I was in a lot of pain and wondering what image to use for my daily post. As I stared at it I became intrigued with the character and mood the image reflected for me. Phototherapy — a good thing:)

    I really like dried leaves as a photo subject (perhaps even more than live ones).

    I think they have more character. Nice shot, Robyn.

    This reminds me a lot of the “green man” — can just kind of make out his face…

  11. I keep looking for him. Not sure I can see the face,,perhaps the eyes are hole within the cluster of leaves?
