The leaves I collect for my photographs all exhibit strong personalities or characteristics. When I discovered this leaf on the path in front of me, it felt like it had been frozen in motion. Holding it in my hand, I could almost feel it being caught by a sudden gust of wind, and then floating back down to the ground. I created this photograph to express that gentle sense of motion.
