Pages of leaves



Went for a walk around the garden and took some photos of leaves and fiddled with them on Photoshop to make them more interesting - as you do!!!!

Hope you have a great weekend.

Very beautiful photo.

Am sorry to hear the news in your last post comments that some lives are lost in the accident. Life is indeed so short. I just lost my dad in law and mom in law few months back due to heart attacks. It is strange that both goes with the same illness within a span of few months apart.

Hi All - thanks for dropping by.

alice - sometimes people can have a heart attack from a broken heart - this often happens when one's partner dies doesn't it???

Leaves are the forgotten beauty in plants and flowers, especially in flowers. Sometimes they are more attractive than the flowers and some of the vines are beyond beauty. I certainly think you have some winners here.

Great leaf pics! The 1st one is my favourite.

I'm so sorry to hear the horrible news!...
You are so very right! life is so short... we have to profit every minute of it!

Greetings.

Good idea to work on leaves as Abraham said. The frist one is also my favourite.

Lovely leaves and it look like you had fun with photoshop. I still haven't bothered to buy that; maybe I should reconsider after seeing what you're able to do!

Very sad to hear about the accident. My heart goes out to your family.

Mighty good fiddling Jules.
Just need to genetically modify the plants to bloom in this way.
You could start up "Les Jardins Botaniques de Takubar", no worries !

Hi Jules! Finally I found some time to enjoy your excellent blog…
Hope everything is ok with your relatives in Brisbane!
The leaves look wonderful, and the colours are stunning!
The beach looks nice, even if the clouds are a bit threatenning!
Interesting to learn the story of Peter ToRot; and the pictures are great! Loved to see the volcano scenes!!
Meanwhile, Blogtrotter, now with the second and last post on the MoMA, will be waiting for your comments! Hope you enjoy and wish you a great week!

Oh Jules, I am so sorry for your family's loss — that was just horrible. And somehow, I think your post is just so appropriate — life, so precious, beautiful, and fun too.

Rose said...

I really like how you fiddled with them...specially the second one.
