theme week, and today's subject absolutely stopped me in my tracks.
Okay, perhaps that's a little dramatic, but I'm completely serious. I was at work, headed out the door on my way to run an errand at lunch, and this perfect orange leaf completely captivated me! My coworkers probably thought I was being a little odd, but I squatted down in the parking lot for a good five minutes photographing this leaf from every possible angle.
The orange leaf, by itself, lying on the black asphalt was just beautiful. I love the contrasts in both color and texture between the two.
If you had any doubt that fall had arrived, this erases it!
