  1. Life has many stages and decay is part of that process.

  3. The dry portion looks like an upward facing flower.

  5. The leaf tip truly stands out in this outstanding photograph, Steve.

    • The shallow depth of field makes the in-focus tip stand out all the more against the large, unfocused majority of the picture.

    • You’ve reminded me that in a supermarket on Long Island in the early 1970s I overheard a woman telling her young daughter that 10 times 10 is a hundred, and a hundred times a hundred is a thousand.

        • Back in the 1960s and ’70s we got the New Math. Since that time, alas, we’ve had many more incarnations of it, each as bad as those that came before. One “advantage” of getting to the age I’ve gotten to is that I’ve seen so many things repeat themselves. The educationists who keep coming up with the new, new, new…new math never acknowledge all their past failures and expect people to greet the latest fiasco as if this time it will really work.
