Leaf Skeletons & Aerial Silk

skeleton leaf

Last year I soaked some camellia leaves in bleach which broke down the green lamina, leaving only the spine, veins, and leaf margin. What was left was a sort of skeleton, ghostlike image of the original leaves.

They look nice framed, but I decided to photograph them and use them for this project, which was created using a Canon Rebel, photo editing software, and a picture of an aerial silk performer.
