From Lucy - LEAVES DRYING - for Monochrome Weekly



Dry leaves, flaked into dust, make wonderful compost. Here, they are waiting for the miracle to happen. It's a bit like paint drying - only the patterns are better!

For more monochrome photos - Monochrome Weekly. (It's worth it!)


Lucy Corrander is taking a break from her regular blog Pictures Just Pictures - but she'll be back there in the autumn.

Love the textures here!

That is quite an image - and I do like to see large pictures.

Hello Monica.

I think perhaps we should take more black and white photos of plants than we generally do - for that very reason - that it brings greater attention to the texture.

Hello Aileni. Glad you like the photo of the leaves drying.

I might ask you for advice sometime on adjusting the size of photos within the main text of blogs. I haven't yet managed to do this without unintentionally lopping bits off or ruining the quality of the picture. That's why I did the large version here as a 'gadget'.

It does have very nice patterns that you probably wouldn't have noticed in b & w., but I'd rather watch paint peel than dry :-)

PS That was the title of my former monochrome weekly.

Hello Rune. Like many others, I'm very pleased to have found your blog.

They look handsome - dry leaves make me sneeze, though...and crisp as the image is, I can feel a tickling in my nose :)

Dry leaves don't make me sneeze, Bim - I love the smell and they make me think of wonderful autumn days and bonfires. It's sweet-peas which make me sneeze. I'm not a summer person!

But I'm glad your nose tickles when you see this photograph. That's a pretty good compliment!
