I'm not really even sure how to describe these images.
A bit speechless - which is very unusual for me :)
My Aunt used to press flowers and make her own stationary.
Every occasion a handmade card would come in the mail,
the beauty of the most common flowers and foilage was exposed there...
forever preserved within.
I cherished them, tucking those bits of paper away...
Thats what these images remind me of.
Photographer Dawn LeBlanc is documenting nature's exquisite radiance for all of us -
a reminder that we don't always have to create new visual treats,
we just have to be mindful of the ones we are overlooking.

Leaves I - this was the image that led me to Dawn's work..
and finally.. Red Sunflower, can't you feel it's pride in a job well done?
Stunning. Open-mouthed gaping.. so wonderful.
Tomorrow the extended family arrives for a beach day and overnight visit -
catch you on the flipside :)
til next time...
