    Looks like Ken’s three leaves are sharing stories about falling from the skies…

    Here’s another leaf, who got held up on its way down to the party.

    I hope you can see the spider thread suspending the leaf?

    I used a Schneider 150mm/9 G-Claron with considerable bellows draw. Despite the magnification, I still had to crop this shot since the leaf stayed small on the film. I think the aperture was fairly open (f/11) for the 1/30th (!) shutter speed. (Who keeps saying to stop this lens way down?) And I was very lucky with DOF. If I had closed down and used flash, I'm sure the soft background would have gone black.

    I remember waiting for the wind to still. And waiting… And waiting…

    You are a patient person !

    Lovely photo !

    Also, the G-Claron has great blur rendition. isn't it a Dialyte design ? Those symmetrical designs really do nicely in that regard.

    I have a few in the kitchen. My wife calls it Methuselah because it has been growing for way more years that you would expect a houseplant to live.
