Street Fossil

Street FossilI found this on the sidewalk on my way to the doctor's office this morning, on Montreal Road between Lang's and Cobb's. I've used Lightroom to increase the clarity on the leaf and decrease it in the surrounding area, then converted to B&W and adjusted contrast and brightness in Corel.

Started reading Anathem by Neal Stephenson. It's tough slugging for the moment. Personally I'm not sure I would devote 40 of the first 100 pages to a description of the temple, but I suppose the assumption is that if you're willing to pay $35 for 1,200 pages of Neal Stephenson, you already know what you're getting into.
