Though Fall was just a week old, the colorful leaf in my Blown In piece was a clear indicator that more color would soon be on its way. In fact, those colors stopped me dead in my tracks as I was walking up the sidewalk on the east side of the Rye Patch. The leaf contrasted nicely against the darker leaves on the small bushes that line that side of the building. It’s fair to say that it was conspicuous, though I wasn’t sure where it came from, and I didn’t see any other leaves with that much color (even after scanning the nearby trees). The high level of detail allows surface textures to be seen.
