After last week’s vegetable “photo shoot”, my subjects ended up in the soup pot.  These leaves were set aside, though - so beautiful I knew they had more photographic potential.

And they certainly lived up to that potential.  I spent a fair amount of time examining the intricate patterns and curling edges, and decided that scanography would show them at their best.  I was not disappointed!  The play of light on the thick leaves creates a beautiful sheen and throws the details into soft relief.  From farm, to market, to art.  Food for the soul.
