Daily Dose of Fall #23

Red paper gives me a bold background for the leaf.
Same leaf, four different looks. This is a leaf from a flowering red currant, one of three bushes in our back yard that the deer seem to adore. I salvaged this leaf, pressed it, and then photographed it sitting on top of four different backgrounds.

This fall, if you have a pretty leaf handy, try setting it on various backgrounds. Shoot it straight-on and see what you think. Instant autumn! ©Carol Leigh

A piece of paper that was painted with blue and light brown watercolors creates a light and somewhat ethereal look.

Chris found a piece of rust for me to use, and I think I like this one the best.

And finally, yet another (old and discolored) paper creates the background here.
