Weekly Photo Challenge: Self Portrait in Ginkgo Leaves

Ginkgo

Ginkgo

I thrill every year when the ginkgo turn yellow here in Northern California. My mother tried to grow them in Oklahoma, where it was too hot and too cold for these living fossils that were around during the time of the dinosaurs. I took this shot of our neighbors tree this week and discovered my face among the leaves just in time for the Weekly Photo ChallengeΒ of Hue of You. Besides I’m rather ruffly, fluffy and girly most of the time.

“For this challenge, we want to keep it simple: share a photograph with a prominent color (or assortment of colors) that reveals more about you. It could be a symbolic, meaningful shade; a color that expresses how you currently feel; or a combination of colors that excites you and tells a visual story.” WFC

Photo notes: Taken with iPhone 4s edited with Photo Toaster’s pastel filter. I finally got IOS7 Β to work after Apple replaced my phone. Pretty nifty!
