This is a first stab at a different type of panel of autumn leaves. Rather than using a textured background – the kitchen floor or a paving slab in the garden I’ve recently shot a series of images of leaves from our Clematis and photographed them on a white background.
Once an idea comes to me, I find my brain continues to explore the idea and different approaches suggest themselves. What I like about this version is that the leaves are ‘specimens’ (as one might display butterflies or moths) – a collection of sorts. And these are concurrent, all these leaves exist on the plant at the same time as decay happens seemingly haphazardly. Some leaves well advanced and others still a brilliant pristine green.
