Seeing as we are now coming into fall and all of the leaves are starting to drop from the trees I thought it may be appropriate to show an earlier stage -when the leaves first started to grow.  Leaves of many plants start off red, turn green, and by the end turn red again.  Perhaps this parrallels the human cycle of caring, a person is born being cared for by their parents, they then go on to have children and care for them, only to be cared for by their children in old age — or at least one hopes.

Playing around with focus.  I like to toy with the idea of taking the subject matter and making it not the focus of a photo…or at least doing things that most photographers would consider a basic mistake.  I believe that sometimes it’s not about the subject but about the final presentation – subject be damned.
