Urban Kimono

It doesn't take long to realize that DC is an urban landscape under construction. In autumn, leaves of every color and description are swept up by the wind and captured by the metal fencing around building sites. This kimono evokes the unexpected beauty of this common phenomena.  

The veins of the leaf were highlighted by placing the leaf on an iPad at full brightness using the Zen Brush app as a background before capture with the iPhone. Voila! a light box!
