Defiant little buggers
Shades of red
London, ON, October 2004
I find inspiration in little things because, to be quite honest, looking for it in big things is too much work. Take this scene, captured on a long ago lunchtime walk. These leaves were pretty much doomed, but they were destined for one last show of brilliance before they winked out forever. Gotta love that sense of defiance in the face of the inevitable.
And all this from a seemingly lowly bunch of leaves. If only the same kind of thinking could be applied to, I don't know, humans?
Your turn: Little things that inspire you. Please discuss.
