I noticed a natural use of lkines in the veins of this leaf. I wanted to capture this effect and shoot the leaf in a unique POV. I decided to shoot it from a bugs POV using a 60 mm macro lens. Instread of shooting from the view of looking at the leaf I shot this with the view of looking outside the leaf from within and it seemd to be a little more intresting POV. Converting to B&W to emphasize texture.
