Leaves And Trees: The Search

I started collecting leaves. Why? Because there is a certain time in a photographer's life where he has taken enough pictures of a certain subject that then that person realizes "I have no idea what I'm doing". No, I don't mean that he or she doesn't know how to take great pictures, but instead, what I mean is they don't know enough about the subject they are taking pictures of.

I've learned a lot about art but I want to learn more about trees. That's why I started a leaf collection and is spotlighting a tree each month on my website. artandtrees.com

My first leaf is from the Persian ironwood tree (Parrotia persica)

The picture below is of a smaller leaf and a bigger leaf from the same tree pressed using a plant press.
