This photo was taken on October 24, 2018 at 8:58 AM.
The location for the photo was one block from the Washington DC Convention Center.
The "Take It !" Came as was engaging in my "Watch Your Step” program which I participate in all the time
after having had a nasty fall last year. I am constantly pleasantly surprised at the rewards this new awareness has
brought me in addition to being able to stay upright.
This slightly damaged fallen leaf has taken on a semblance of a face with just a partial tear, brought about by who
knows what. Part of what grabbed my eye was just how virtually one quarter of the leaf was damaged to bring the
facial likeness with the rest of the leaf remaining in tact. I cannot help but think someone stepped on it to
arrive at this state after it landed.
Part of the fun of this photo was in the explaining of my vision of the formation of just enough shaping of
features to have it qualify as a face. Thankfully those who I showed it to were able to make their way to join me
with this final out take. Whew! Sometimes I wonder if my imagination is perhaps a little bit too
expansive, this was one of those times.
Here is hoping this ever so small a sharing brings you a smile.
Fall has many more bounties for us to view.
Wishing you my best,
Little did this leaf know it was going to have a role in its afterlife, to being us a smile
