Turning over a new leaf

Valmar Road (4), London, SE5

I found this leaf on the pavement this morning, on my way to buy milk for that most important of important things – the first cup of tea of the day.

I was really struck by its amazing crinkly colour patterns, and how it has almost taken on the shape of a whole new leaf, as the spaces in between the stems have dried out, turned brown, and crumpled off.

It was this bright and shiny top side that first grabbed my attention.

But along came the wind, and off bounced the leaf…only to reveal a completely different, more subtle, but just as beautiful, colour experience.

I had to show both sides.
