I like the tight crop on this shot.....and the light filtering through the green makes it glow....and of course I like the screen texture :o)

I love inspiration found close to home, that should be my motto for the week!

love the idea that I don't know what it is....it is gorgeous...you are very good with your camera...

Vanessa said...

That is amazing! So geometric, yet organic!

notmassproduced said...

wow - that's amazing how you can see through the leaf

There is hope in a seed, and here it is :)
Light is beautiful Kate, as is the shadow play...

ww...I like the tight crop also. I usually crop tightly as I'm taking the photograph, which I did on this one. And then I cropped it again in Photoshop (one of the few things I know how to do in Photoshop!).

jeane...thanks for the compliment! Should I tell you what it is or are you happier not knowing?

vanessa..thanks. Yes, I like the geometry and the gentle curves combined, along with the light.

notmassproduced...yes, that's what got my attention. I was passing by and the neon green just jumped out at me and then I knew I had to grab my camera.

jo...hope expressed.

i love the shadows, the translucent green, and the spiderwebs on the screen.

yes, tell us what it is. : )

kate said...

lynne...aha, you must have clicked to see the spider webs! And here's the unveiling. It's the first shoot of a date leaf. Anytime Jerzy eats anything with a seed, he pops it in earth and watches it grow. This time it was the seed of a date.

Oh do I love the beauty of this kate.. so delicate... with opposing texture...

lynne h said...

a date! in canada! i think that i would like jerzy a lot!

Uschi said...

Ha! I love this "Jerzy- recycling"!!
Give back to nature what you got...keep the growing-circle alive.
I did this with 5 medlar-seeds some months ago, now I've got five tiny medlar-trees growing...They're supposed to become 5 metres high...this will "overgrow" me a bit, heheee..but at least dates are not so small, neither??

kate said...

gwen...opposing textures. I Like that!

lynne and uschi...check out my next post. We not only have dates we have figs...galore! Thanks to my green-thumbed Jerzy. He keeps snipping off branches of the figs and sticking them in pots.

Some people just have green fingers. I don't seem to have such luck with pips, seeds and cuttings.
Great shot!

kate said...

robyn...my fingers are not green at all so it's good we have at least 10 in the family.
