Oak Leaf in Winter

(Toledo, OH) The solitary leaf caught my eye, roiling as it did in the January wind that accompanied an approaching high pressure system. There was an element of stoicism that appealed to me in the leaf's seemingly defiant stance against a much more powerful force, although admittedly the features of a Canon camera can make even the ordinary take on spiritual or heroic qualities.

After all: it is just an oak leaf. Nothing more, nothing less, and my attempts to project meaning may ring hollow in winter's frigid indifference.
