Pressed


I decided to press some leaves to try my hand at one of those arty shots but left them a little too long.

Reflection:
Luke 6:38 (New International Version)
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

  1. A little too long in what way?

    To my eye you have achieved your aim: an arty shot. The leaves are quite wonderful as is the way you have laid them out in singular array allowing each its time in my gaze. I like the stems still attached. I like that I can see notches and blemishes.

    And the choice of woven cloth is spot on.

    Tres arty ...

  2. If I had got to them a little earlier they would have been pressed flat but held a little more of their original colour. The very dark one for example was quite red when I put it in the press.
