Yup, I’m definitely not done with leaves. Here are 3 very different leaves that caught my eye this fall.
I’ve said before that I love the patterns produced by rust and weathered paint. The bold compositions produced by the elements working away at metal surfaces covered in their flimsy dressing of paint can rival those of some of the most venerated abstract expressionists. These canvases, however, are not so much the kind you find in museums, but rather on dumpsters, storage containers, parking lot barriers and such. Here are several examples of compositions of rust and weathered pain that caught my eye, several for producing patterns that were almost floral in appearance. (I realize that what these also look like are inkblots. What do you see in the pictures?)
Some sort of wall at the Völklingen Ironworks, in Germany.
I really can’t promise that this leaf is the last one I’ll post here. Actually, I can more easily promise that this is not the last leaf I’ll post here. This just happens to be the last leaf photo that I’ve taken. (As in the most recent. Definitely not the final leaf photo that I expect to be taking.)
Here is a collection of misplaced leaves and flowers that caught my eye over recent years.
These are a few photos I took one afternoon last week while the kids played in the woods by our house. The riotous color of October foliage have given way to the muted browns and grays, with occasional splashes of bright leaves.
(It won’t be long before even these scraps of color will give way to white on white.)
