It’s funny how things work out!
In my family photo challenge , ‘A Word a Week’, the word for this week happens to be Leaves.
Then I check out Terri’s Sunday Stills theme and it just happens to be Leaves and Trees. As Terri is in the Northern Hemisphere it’s possible the prompt comes from the autumn colour they’d be experiencing at the moment but as we’re in spring, our leaves are of a different hue.
And there are lots of ways you can interpret ‘leaves’.
Our family photo challenge has be reinstated to help us stay connected. Due to many issues, some of us still can’t travel to see family members scattered across Australia and over in the UK, so our weekly word gives us a sense of connection. We have a weekly Zoom chat each Sunday night to discuss what’s been happening in our worlds and talk about the photos we’ve taken and submitted.
Some of the more creative members of the family have used leaves in a variety of ways – children leaving on the school bus, a sister leaving after a visit, baby birds nestled into a nest made under the leaves, lots of glorious artistic shots of green leaves, babies being thrown into the air to touch the leaves, and one of my husband’s that I still don’t understand 🙂 I’m hoping he’ll explain it on the group chat tonight!
My photo is pretty much a literal interpretation of the sunset, as viewed through the leaves the other day. I loved the light at that time in the afternoon and the leaves made a nice frame.

Thanks for stopping by. I’ll leave you with the first thing that came into my head when I thought about the word leaves, the song by Mental As Anything, If you leave me…
If you leave me, can I come too?
We can always stay
But if you leave me, can I come too?
And if you go, can I come too?
Have a great week!
