I was quite convinced that I used all of the good words. Then, 'hope' came to mind. A perfect word for what's going on in my life.
Why 'hope'? I have several things planned for myself that I thought would've happened by now. I'm far too impatient and want to give up every other day (more like every other hour). I need to keep believing that something good will happen. Hope is what I need.
For this shot, the leaves were lightly sprayed with water so that they wouldn't blow around. I eventually climbed up a ladder and took an overhead shot. I'm happy with the end result.
