This is my submission for this week's "I Heart Macro" at Studio Waterstone. It seems every photo I'm posting lately is of leaves, but what can I say? They are in large supply right now. Each leaf is transforming from brilliant hues to faded coppers and rusts. But anything with age always seems to have more character, don't you think? Just like people...their physical beauty may fade as they age, but their spirits and wisdom ripen to a patina that resonates.
