leaf it to me

A camera,

new and slightly tested,

zoomed in on

a dying

elephant ear leaf

aka Colocasia

and snapped its picture

quickly

with little or no

thought

and changed said leaf

into an

undulating mass of

lines

color

texture

that seemed to

move on its own

as it lay dormant

on my patio

curling up in death
curling up in death

  1. Such an interesting, textured shot…but you got me thinking about leaves ‘dying’ – do they? or are they like our hair and just part of a tree? …we’ll not really but are they actual living things?…then it got too confusing so I gave up trying to figure it out!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
