    • I love this leaf. I actually ended up bringing it home, after I took several shots of it. (I’ll probably share more of them.) It’s a fascinating little structure!

  2. How pretty! It truly is all about light, huh? 🙂

    • I was and still am completely fascinated with this leaf (I brought it home). I can’t figure out how it’s still holding itself together; it looks so fragile, and yet’s actually fairly sturdy–the skeleton of it, that is. A wonderful and beautiful structure. I took more photographs of it that I may share, just to show precisely how translucent it really is.

    I am not sure what I am looking at – but this is cool picture!

    • It’s actually just a translucent leaf (with mostly just it’s skeleton and veins left… the rest eaten away by time and bugs, I guess). I’m holding it up in one hand so that we can also see it’s shadow on the sidewalk. I’m glad you like the shot!

  5. very interesting… what made them transparent?

    • I found this leaf on the sidewalk (which is the background for the shot). There is just one leaf, and it has probably been eaten up by bugs. I brought the leaf home, after taking lots of photographs of it. I was enthralled by its shape and translucence. I was also fascinated by its structure and sturdiness (despite its very fragile appearance): its simply a skeleton now with only its veins remaining. I will probably post a few more images of it in the coming days. Thank you for your interest!

  9. Cool image

  10. Amazing! If I can find a transparent leaf I’ll have to try that. I’m assuming that insects ate all but the veins.

    • Thank you very much. I took other photographs of this leaf that I may post another time. I kept the leaf, too… I couldn’t let it go. It’s still holding its beautiful form.

  12. This is just brilliant! I love that it flirts with being abstract whilst being very much a picture.

    • Thank you, Richard. I have more images that I took that day of this leaf, which I may post some other time. I’m completely taken with its structure, so seemingly delicate, and yet still firmly holding its form.

    • Thanks, Steve. I’ll be over soon for a visit to see what you’ve been up to.

  14. I like how the shadow’s tonality completely fit the tonality of the background. As If it was burned in.

    Very artistic shot!
