There is something fascinating with the sun light going trough leaves.
In the series of photos I explore leaves. It is a form of still life, and I try to emphasize shapes and color tones.
I'm easily captivated by the shadows created by the backlight trough the leaves, the bokeh and soft background.
The color tones in this end of February are warm, the leaves are mostly in a bad shape, quite dying actually.
"Once something has outlived its usefulness in one area of life, its purpose for being in existence is no longer the same. The leaf that captures a stream of sunlight, and then transfers its energy to the tree, serves one purpose in the spring and summer, and another completely different one through the fall and winter."
There is no technical challenge here. I just see the leaf, frame it, shoot it. It's simple, pure. It's capturing the beauty in the mundane.
No message, no meaning, only something in nature that captured my glance.
