There is an small saping tree growing in my front yard. I don’t know the species but it might a walnut tree. It sprung up out of an old ground squirrel hole. The leaves have been falling to the ground in this late summer heat – about 95 degrees now. The other evening, I noticed some wonderful textures in one leaf so I collected a handful and put them in a box with the idea of creating an image. This morning I photographed them in several lighting conditions. This frame was made indoors by window light, with a sunlit interior wall reflecting light onto the leaves.
