Week 2: Black & White
This photo was taken late in the afternoon as the sun was starting to sink. After realizing that my kids were not going to work as models, I ventured into the backyard where this leaf was just popping. The color version is practically neon green because it was backlit by the sun.
You know when you’re in the grocery store and you see those tabloids that show what celebrities look like when they don’t have makeup on? That’s kind of what this leaf reminds me of. If you were just passing by you’d see that it’s perfectly lovely, but after looking a bit closer and changing the contrast just a bit, you can see that the poor thing is somewhat ravaged and has definitely seen a better day.
I wish I hadn’t shot the original image so close in; I would have liked to rotate it a bit more for a more interesting composition but I didn’t leave myself that option. Oh well, learning is what these 52 weeks are all about, right?
And now let’s head over to see what Jenny’s posted on her blog. I’m sure it’s fab as usual.
