The gray August day inspired these nearly neutral photos. The white flower has a nice soft glow, as opposed to the harsh glare I'd get on a sunny day.
The dead leaf was found hanging on the side of a tree that had recently been scorched by fire - it is fair to say this is a "crime scene photo". Our neighbors insist on burning copious amounts of yard waste in their back yard - despite the danger inherent in doing so during the usually dry summer and in violation of city law. Our neighbor's behavior has inspired The Boyfriend to take up the mantle of "Neighborhood Asshole" - a role that had recently been played by our next door neighbor until his untimely death by cancer. Considering our neighborhood is a tinderbox of dry pine needles...I can't say that I blame him. Needless to say, I took some more comprehensive "crime scene" photos.
