My love affair with leaves


I like to dabble in photography, and by “dabble” I mean take pictures that I think look cool–I have no credible knowledge on the subject. My boyfriend has a plethora of knowledge about it, but the most high-tech I get is turning on my macro setting. I also don’t like to alter Nature photographs–with my pictures, what you see is what I saw the moment I took them. I don’t stage objects for the pictures, and I don’t do any editing whatsoever, aside from the occasional cropping.

My love affair with leaves began many moons ago, when I was a child. I have always been fascinated with their detail. They continue to capture my interest today. Here are some of my favorite photos I’ve taken over the years.

About AmbleDamsel

Truthfully, I’m writing this blog because I’m too much of a wimp to share my poems with most people I know. I’m hoping this blog will be a way to get honest feedback about them, without offending anyone. I generally prefer to write privately, and with pen and paper. There’s just something much more therapeutic & enjoyable about actually handwriting something–a better feeling than any lousy keyboard could ever give me! People who inspire me: John Lennon, Keri Smith, Sabrina Ward Harrison, Conor Oberst, Ethel Kennedy, Brooks Strause, Charles Bukowski, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, E.E. Cummings, Charles Dickens, Henry Darger, and Orly Avineri.
