Being a street photographer, and living in big cities, my images typically have a lot going on in them. I tend to look for elements that help tell a story of the moment.
But on a recent trip to the park with my youngest son after a rainfall, I looked down and stumbled on this simple, monochromatic scene. Perhaps I was in a relaxed state, or perhaps my three year old son’s random curiosity rubbed off on me, but I was struck by the minimalism of this lonely leaf on the sand.
I took this shot with my phone, processed it using the Snapseed app, and liked the result.
