Where stories are born

Artist's Description

Throughout the year you tell many stories
As you shed, conceive and recolour your leaves;
Or the mind of the artist as they bring flavour
To the things they scribble on a piece of paper.
Sometimes you yourself will be the slate
To commemorate the first kiss on a date;
And finally through the camera lens
You bring life to your own fibres again.

Everything in life has a story
Lets make ours a fine memory

My tribute to trees and the stories they produce; whether through themselves or the things we write, draw, or print on the papers made of them – or sometimes on they themselves; that was where my inspiration came from.

I took the photo today (Oct, 6, 2012) with a CASIO EX-FC100, then enhanced it in Photoshop – see original photo here

It has been cloudy most of the day and I sat through the cold waiting for the sun to come out as I tried to experiment with the set-up. The leaves on the branches above tell a story as they record their shadows within the pages of the book. Soon the shady green trees of summer will be a shadow of the past…

For my other tribute to trees (which is based more on health) see here

Toronto, Canada.
