Thematic Photographic--Leaves

Thanks to Carmi for hosting Thematic Photographic. To see other entries click here.

Images are everywhere. These leaves were found (holding on to a branch) in a mall parking lot. Often beauty can be found in the mundane. I am particularly fascinated by the textures and subtle colors. Then, translated into a monochrome image.

Real lovely leaf, like the feeling a lot. Prefer the red one, it's darker, more powerful.

"Often beauty can be found in the mundane."

Truer words have seldom been written. I love how you composed this image - and the back story behind it. Beauty is everywhere around us, even in the everyday places most folks would overlook. I'm so glad you're one of the few who actively looks for moments like this.c
