exploring the stillness of a fallen leaf

The fall months are a busy time for me. Every day brings new things to see, new things to photograph. When I wait for the school bus with my kids, or take my dog for a walk, I frequently stop and pick up the newly fallen leaves. Once and a while, one catches my attention and demands to be photographed. My studio is now filled with leaves, all patiently waiting their turn....

Inspirit I, an abstract of a leaf

Why do I photograph leaves? Even the stillness of a fallen leaf contains motion, energy, and life. The shapes and patterns that emerge as it dries form a portrait of its life: the movement of the tree in the wind; the leaf's final flight down to the ground.

Every day in the fall, I bring more leaves home to my studio to photograph.

See my other abstractions of leaves.

Thank you,
