Imprinted

I decided to post the background to my remembrance post from today's main album.
Although the impression made on the paper by the pressed olive leaves was clear, it was difficult to highlight in the photograph, without also overemphasising the texture of the paper. So I decided to add a colour filter to the leaf area.

I like the result. But then again, these leaves are a reminder to me of a very special place which holds so much history. This oldest olive tree lies just a few miles from Bethlehem where the harvesting will now be taking place by villagers who come together to harvest their olives each season.

I like this, but I like that you brought these leaves home with you even more
