Thought I'd get some close up shots of these leaves. The photos just look much more interesting this way than if I'd taken a photo of the entire plant.
The angles of the leaves caught my attention, along with their high gloss shine. All it took was a spray of water and for the sun to shine brightly. That's no problem here in Texas, where it's still summertime.
I like the different angles and perpectives that the one subject provided...even if it meant that I had to be the one to move closer or further or remember to turn the camera on its side for a different view.
