3 Faces of Leave
Today I found this leaf upon the sidewalk as I was walking back inside work with my lunch in hand. At first glance, it was sort of odd which is probably why it caught my eye. I carefully carried it inside, showed it to one of my co-workers who knew I was going to take a picture of it. Now why would she know that? I told her it was imperfect much like we are, but there is beauty in it's imperfection. First, I placed it on orange card stock paper since this is fall after all. The second photo was on my mouse pad which is maroon and matches the decor of the office. After I shot the two, I left it alone on my desk while I did some work. Hours later, I noticed it had changed by curling up so it did not sit as well as it did in the first two photos. It made me realize how much things can change in a matter of moments. Because it was curled differently and wouldn't sit as well, I taped it to my black printer and snapped it hanging there. I know I should have used invisibile tape, but I did not have any on hand. After having uploaded the three photos, I probably should have cropped the last one more to rid it of the tape and may still do it. It looks more haggish or witchy which is perfect for this time of the year. It would have made a great Odd Shot also. The whole time I kept thinking of the caption "3 Faces of Leave" and it kept repeating in my head so strongly I knew it had to be it's own post. The title reminded me of David McMahon of Authorblog at:
David, hope you don't mind I borrowed your sense of humor with the title here. I promise to return it you.
Happy Fall ya'll!
