Day 49. August 26, 2010. While walking down Bryant St. in Downtown Palo Alto, I found this gorgeous leaf on the ground. By evening when I took this, it had already dried up somewhat, but it still retained most of its bright colors. I soaked it in water for about 5 minutes, then placed it on a black cloth. There's a weak, diffuse on-camera flash, and a moderate flash from behind the leaf to the right that shines through the leaf. Burned bottom right corner in post-processing, and sharpened.
