Vintage Page Designs: The Imperfect Leaf

The Imperfect Leaf

It rained most of last week, but happily on Friday the sun came out.  I had the day off work, so once the school bus left, I headed straight to the forest with my camera and dog in tow.  I planned to capture some of the early autumn colors and had in mind a great shot of a leaf on a mossy log.

I had been walking for a long time, unsuccessfully searching the ground for the perfect leaf to photograph, when all of sudden it hit me - I wasn't going to find the perfect leaf!  Why was I even searching for a perfect leaf? And what does a perfect leaf look like anyway?  Each one that I picked up and discarded was beautiful.  They were all dirty and damaged, but just like people, their beauty lay in their imperfection.

  I hope you like the picture of my not so perfect leaf - I do!

It's wonderful. I don't think there is beauty in perfection.
