I went for a walk through Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle today, and I found layers of leaves…

Even the pine cones were layered with pine needles:

This weeks’ Weekly Photo Challenge is “Layers.”   More interpretations can be seen here.


  1. Beautiful details full of texture. The pine cone and needles is exceptional in sepia (?) – I love the Fibonacci spirals of pine cones and this one really shows it so well. You’ve captured the small pleasures of the end of season perfectly!

  5. Thank you Karen. Though these are very different from your work, you know sometimes I do images with a softer look, or blurred, etc., and I want to tell you that I carry your style in my mind very often, and it inspires me.


  6. Oh, I do love leaves…even when I lived in the desert of Arizona, I always looked forward to the minimal Fall that we had. We had planted a Cottonwood in our back yard so that we *would* have something that resembled Fall every year. Very nice images, Lynn…wonderful, actually. 🙂


    • Thank you Scott – leaves are like paper, and they’re very graphic, simple images, with a basic shape & so many variations. I’ve always loved them too. And now I’m appreciating cottonwoods, with their nicely heart shaped yellow leaves and that cool cotton.
