It was another early morning at the office, and I noticed this maple leaf in the parking lot. It had just stopped raining, and the stem still had raindrops on it. No amount of maneuvering could get me close to the angle I wanted, so I finally grabbed a towel from the car, and flopped down on the parking lot!
