I composed this shot in downtown Silverton, Oregon. I was drawn to the shapes of the leaves in both the foreground and background. I was also attracted to the background color from a neon sign, so used a shallow depth of field to pick up the colors, but not the words from the lighted sign.

I think it all adds up to make an interesting, sort of abstract photograph.
