Hostas Leaves #2
Hostas leaves growing in a Portland, Oregon garden.
I made this small series of photographs of the leaves of hostas plants while wandering around the extensive rose gardens at Portland, Oregon's Washington Park. I'm not a big fan of photographing roses - though I'm fascinated by looking at them - so I had not made any photographs while visiting that primary area of the garden, but once we began to poke around in some of the peripheral gardens that featured other kinds of plants I started to see things that attracted my own photographic interest more strongly. This set of leaves was in a large bed of hostas plants along a walkway and in the shade, and I thought that the colors and textures of their overlapping leaves created some very interesting patterns.
