Fall Leaf Eclipses the Sun

fall leaf shot through
taken with Camera+, and then run through Snapseed, and then run through Camera+, and then run through Noise Master, and then run through Flickr

What you can't see in this photo is what I went through to take it. Just as I held the leaf up, my body decided to be allergic to all of autumn. I was stifling sneezes with tears streaming down my face while snotting on my scarf as I tried my darnedest to keep the leaf from shaking out of alignment with the sun. A man literally crossed the street to avoid me.

This is how I win friends and influence people.
