I was walking back from the first laundry run at the new apartment, looking for 365 possibilities, and I spotted the leaves on the left.

4 shots later, I was done, but for a title…

The heart shape of these leaves calls up some fairly obvious themes, methinks, but my limited imagination couldn’t do anything with it.

I say ‘limited’ largely due to the flurry of activity I’ve been involved in today, and the virtual fog that settled over the brain about an hour and a half ago.

Oh well. It’s a pretty enough picture anyway, and it has some nice compositional bits that sorta make it work for me, and I’m happy with it, so GoGo.

And may I say again how much I love the Vivitar 70-210 Series 1? Have I mentioned it before? This lens is insanely sharp, gives great bokeh, has good color rendition, and just shines all around, and I got it for $40. There’s a reason the first 3 models of this lens are legendary, after all, so I’m merely adding a few words to the chorus.

D7000. Vivitar 70-210mm f/3.5 Series 1 (Kiron, maybe), in Close Focus mode. ISO800, 1/640th (AP mode), f/3.5, -1EV. About 30 seconds of slider play in Aperture.
