A friend has an office in a building with an atrium for a lobby. I have posted some shots of a bench in the atrium before, but this day I was sitting on the bench, having some fun playing with the light. I was fascinated by the new leaf in the foreground of this shot. It is both curled in from the edges to the central vein and twisted in a spiral. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to make the camera take the close-up I want instead of the one it THINKS I want, and the leaf is not in focus! But I like the picture anyhow.
This shows part of a leaf of Norfolk Island Pine. I think the leaves of this plant are lovely, and their shadows on the cedar paneling add to the beauty.
Looking down farther, I noticed these trunks. The plants are not in pots, but directly in the floor of the atrium, which is very much like a patio with planting beds around it.
Turning the camera upward I enjoyed these spiky tufts reaching for the sky. Outside the glass you see a street tree in bloom, although its flowers aren't showy.
Finally a shot of a fairly large fig enjoying the sunshine. I hope everyone has a superb Shadow Shot Sunday, a magnificent Macro Monday, and a mellow (of course!) Mellow Yellow Monday!
