Accidental leaf alignment
DP280-2013 Posted October 7; processed October 6.
These sassafras leaves just happened to 'stack' exactly as you see them. They were all still attached to their respective trees except for the small green mitten near the rear, which had fallen, probably during the previous day's rain, and stuck to its landing site. I'm constantly amazed at the range of colors dispayed by sassafras leaves in autumn. I especially love the purples and pinks. As to leaf texture, they might look tough and leathery. The truth is quite different. They are incredibly supple and smooth to the touch.

I'm hoping to use this gallery to challenge myself to learn something every day about seeing the world, photographing it, expressing myself through photos, and enjoying the works of other photographers. It will test my self-discipline. I won't even pretend that I'll take a picture every single day, but I will try to process one each day. Critiques are welcomed, and even encouraged. If you make a suggestion for altering one of my posts, to this or any other gallery, and I can act on it (short of retaking the shot), I'll try to respond and post the altered versions in a new 'Take Your Pick' gallery here: http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Photography/Take-Your-Pick/27975689_qs5bJs
