A walk through our backyard in late fall, appreciating the colors and textures of the leaves.

This was my first real experiment with "lens whacking." That's where you detach the lens and gradually move it around in front of the camera sensor, which causes strange focus aberrations and light flares to seep in. All of the "effects" were done in camera. I thought the effect fit nicely with the subject matter. The leaves are caught fluttering between life and death, and the jittery quality of the shots, in focus for only a moment, with light flashing in and out, seems to capture that ephemeral moment in time.
