After clearing away some of the beautiful fall leaves from the pavement in James A. Garfield National Historic Site, Ranger Allison and I noticed these beautiful patterns that the decomposing leaves were leaving on the pavement.
A stunning, a bit abstract picture that I really like actually. I like the leaf patterns in the floor or whatever it is, it really emphasizes the two color leafs and really makes it pop out of the picture. It's also good that the background is grey although I am not that keen on the darker corners of the picture. Good colorstrength of the leafs though but I think you should have placed them more down in the picture because now when they are so far up your eyes don't really get drawn to them as they should
This is really cool. It reminds me of the Salem Willows, where you can see leaf patterns in the pavement, as though someone pressed a leave against the cement before it hardened. I like that you included two actual leaves of differing colors, to compare with the imprints on the pavement.
Thank you so much! You know, I'm not sure how, exactly, that this happened to the pavement... I think it's something to do with decomposing leaves. And the credit should really go to James A. Garfield's wife Lucretia. The MANY types of trees provide us with a bevy of beautiful brightly colored leaves.
