Today, it's the exception to the rule-- blessed simplicity. Yellow, sunlit leaf against a web of brown branches and a blue sky. I like it.
The story? I was shooting along the Lackawanna River at Archbald Tuesday morning, and I captured some very nice scenes. I was walking back to my car when this caught my eye-- the last leaf on a tree, the branch just over my head. The sun was hitting it perfectly.
I tried the shot a few different ways-- blurred and sharp. Below is the "sharp" version.
I like the blurred background version a bit better. The sharp is still pretty good. Some might suggest it's better and I get that. It seems more "alone" in the second photo.
I'm not a big "supernatural" person, but I do think there are times when there are messages in the things we see around us. Is this a sign to keep hanging on, and hanging in?
I'll be thinking about this one for a while.
