Scav Hunt Sunday: Leaves and Snow

Found texture:
I was sorta stumped until I walked by this house's amazing landscaping on my way to work. I love the natural stone and the prickly ground cover.

This is a beautiful wall hanging my mom bought me her last trip to Israel. It says Blessing for the Home and has a prayer blessing the house (or apartment), I love the colors and meaning it has!

I intended on using the street covered in leaves and then it snowed (yup, snowed, and is still snowing). So now you get both...

In Tzafat, a city in Israel they make amazing micro-calligraphy. I bought this when I was there a few years ago. So from a far it looks like an ordinary picture, then as you get closer you see the words that make up the lines.

A tree stands in Brookline. The colors on this tree on the small playground at my school are just stunning.

Can´t believe you have snow already, before us here in Sweden and all! :-D I´m a tiny bit envious, it looks much prettier with a little white..! :-)

I saw all that snow on the BBC news last night! The snow on that ground of that playground with that coloured maple would be a great picture to capture if the snow is still there tomorrrow.

I loved that micro-calligraphy.

Great series of shots Tamar. I'm in the damn snow too. Your tree of brilliant leaves is stunning, but I am drawn this week to the two pieces of art you shared. I would love to see all those words close up. Very inspirtational.
