Zoo Visit & Fall 2006

Perhaps my favorite thing to photograph is light transmitting through either a plant (especially leaves and flowers) or through material like a flag, banner or shirt. Or better yet, through stained or colored glass, like a blue vase on a window sill. This shot was seen in our backyard. I snapped it on the way to the car, going to the zoo. Funny: looking at it now, it almost looks like I did a cut and paste job. The way the different colored leaves interact almost appears as though the composition was doctored. Not so. That's what it looked like - though obviously reality is better than I can portray with my weak abilities and older model, non-SLR digital camera.
