More Orton

Another Orton-ized manipulation of an existing photo. This is from the series of frosty leaf pictures from which I posted a couple of days ago. I think the effect plays up the impression of loneliness or abandonment or of time slipping away.

A number of acquaintances have lost loved ones or been involved in personal tragedy recently. I imagine that they, too feel like the fallen leaf at this point in their lives. But they also have strong family ties and a deep reliance and faith in God to carry them through these tough times.

Life is too short to spend it away from contact and meaningful interactions with other humans and with God. Hoping you have plenty of both in the coming year.
