What we step on … Karori, Jan 2016

Walking down the street last week the leaf caught my eye. Initially I could not figure out why but then the textures – natural and man made – started to work on my mind. Man’s textures changed by nature and natures textures highlighted by man’s – whatever. There was something so I made a photo with the only camera I had – my iPhone. I love this image for its simplicity, for the fact that it honours things we just step on.

  1. Hi Bruce
    It’s funny that something we might ordinarily classify as ‘mundane’ can make some of the strongest images. Your square format really suits this, with the 3 portions of different textures. Then the contrast of te leaf brings attention to it.
    It makes me wonder if you stepped on it afterwards! 🙂

  2. I love your understanding of texture, which is strong within your work. The linear divisions and hard man made surfaces within this image create a formality that is strengthened by the square format and draw attention to the lovely organic form and texture of the leaf, despite the lack of colour contrast, looking a little sad and embarrassed to be caught in this position. I hope you didn’t stand on it 😉

  3. I like the soft feeling of the leaf and the hard lines of the concrete. At least you had a camera with you and made this simple graphic image.
