A leaf turns


You could see a decaying leaf anywhere around you. Yes, you could, but I don’t manage to. In my every day surroundings I seem to walk around with closed eyes. It is only when I go for a walk far far away that even the most ordinary things begin to look amazing: food, a bath, or even a decaying leaf. As it decays it reveals the intricate architecture of the whole lead: the veins and scaffolding on which the photosynthetic cells grow. So much has to be done to let the leaf catch light and to turn the sun’s energy into food.

This week’s DP photo challenge calls for an abstract. This is one: pattern abstracted from the object and the object abstracted from its surroundings. But when you come down to it, the picture is just a leaf rotting away, mundane enough for Photrablogger.

I travel on work. When that gets too tiring then I relax by travelling for holidays. The holidays are pretty hectic, so I need to unwind by getting back home. But that means work.
