The background to this and yesterdays image is quite interesting. I was on my way to the Staten Island ferry and there is a park near there. This was Autumn of last year. I saw this leaf amongst the many others. The beautiful colours of Autumn and that calm you get. As if nature has sighed and taken a break from all of the activity of summer. I wanted to capture this. So, as I walked along with the leaf in hand, I just placed it on two minimal, cold manmade objects. I wanted a backdrop that contrasted well and didn't detract from the centrepiece that is nature. Quite a spontaneous moment really, had a ferry to catch.
