The Leaf That Could


I came across this photo the other day. I do not remember when or where I took it. It was one leaf, a bright red one, hanging on despite being surrounded by barren desolation. Maybe there's a moral in this somewhere.

O Henry "The Last Leaf". I'm not usually a short-story fan at all. But I liked his enough to actually remember them. After many years!

Have you ever read O. Henry's short story, The Last Leaf. As an adolescent I loved O.Henry and remember this story quite vividly. Read it if you haven't!

Well, I haven't read "The Last Leaf" but I do seem to be humming "I Gotta Be Me!"

Perfect capture. The surroundings add a lot to the image.

An old autumn leaf right next to a new bud, ah nature is grand!

I don't know about a moral... but I like the color.

The colour stands out beautifully, Lowell!
