11-15-09 Decadence 01

Given the nice weather, my wife was eager to work on getting her flower garden ready for the winter. But before she could destroy the strange, natural beauty of withered and bug eaten leaves, I took a few photos. Thus begins a series that I call “Decadence.” The morning light was excellent in that it was filtered through thin fog.

You may not like this photo – I don’t think it is particularly pretty. But I do like the sheen on the wet leaves and the way the light defines the surfaces of these coneflower leaves. I promise some color in tomorrow’s post!

  1. Not too crazy about bug-eaten dead leaves. Reminds me of my own mortality – the shortness of my own season of life – and how my body will look like when it’s all over and done with.
