Even a dead leaf has more life than styrofoam

This dry leaf curled into a cocoon like shape. Lying in an indentation in a piece of styrofoam, it stuck me that a dead leaf still has more life in it than the styrofoam. I have to admit that I like the webbed texture visible in the styrofoam, though.

I really like the black and white version of this image:

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).
