For the past couple of weeks I have been editing all of the photographs I have taken since early spring, boiling down hundreds of photographs to a small, focused collection of new work. This editing process is exhausting work, so I decided to take a break and share a few of my new photographs.
These three photographs are portraits of the same small leaf, which I found walking in the Great Swamp with my family last fall. I am especially happy with these because they were such surprises — I had nearly trashed them, several times, but something kept calling me back. And after a ton of work, I began to see what I felt was under the surface the whole time.
