A River Returns What Has Fallen

[flickr id="6333164730" thumbnail="medium" overlay="true" size="small" group="" align="center"] I was walking along the banks of a river and noticed these leafs floating across the surface. I moved from side to side to find an interesting angle and, as I did so, the reflection of the bare trees on the far bank came into play. I couldn't help but notice the visual trick of replacing the fallen leafs back upon the trees. I made a few shots but wasn't very happy with the outcome. At that point, I deliberately underexposed and, voila, I was much happier.

Floating Barrel

Floating Barrel On my way to a photo shoot, I pulled over to explore a field in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood. I saw a lot of great photo opportunities, but this rusted out barrel attached to the wall snagged my eye. After I shot the scene, I just knew I'd be happy with it once I saw it on the big screen...and I was.
