The leaf

Here is a leaf for Irene’s Sunshine Macro Monday

Last week I posted a flower, this week a leaf of a Macaranga. The leaves of a Macaranga can grow up to 20cm. An Australian Native plant that grows from northern Australia to the north coast of NSW, from sea level to around 700M.  The large heart shaped leaves have a few uses including used a s a contraceptive.

Abstract – Images from my lens

The word prompt from Ragtag Daily Prompt: Abstract

I love this theme. I often think of photography as art as well as capturing life in the moment. I have quite a number of photos that I have deliberately taken in a folder called “Arty Ones”

All of these photos are what I saw with my minds eye. None have been altered or enhanced. Many involve shadows or water as they can provides many abstract images. I hope you enjoy my Abstract images.
