When I am driving around, or walking around Philadelphia, and do not want to carry around my OM-D, I keep my Canon Power Shot S-100 handy, as it was a few months back. Ginko trees, and their leaves, I find quite amazing. I think they may be among the most beautiful of all tree leaves, as a form. And, at the same time, they may be our most ancient living tree, dating back, I believe, to the age of the dinosaurs. And, it is one of the hardiest city trees, a tree that can stand almost anything. These leaves are just as I found them, on the sidewalk under a ginkgo tree around the corner from my studio.

Ginko, as in the leaves they use to make medicine, Peter?
Imagine just finding them on the pavement (sidewalk Smile) - people pay good money for this stuff..!
Of course, as everyone knows, the streets of London are paved with gold - just a case of getting it to market..!
Beautiful colours and textures in your image - and - well done for seeing this and making a photograph.
It goes to prove that the best camera you have is the one in your hand.
