Leafy Green

“Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”
— Pedro Calderon de la Barca (17th century Spanish poet, writer)

Very closeup shot of a plant in the Botanic Garden at Balboa Park.  I don’t remember what kind of plant this is; maybe a fern?  Interesting how sometimes when you look at something too closely, you can literally lose sight of what it is.  It’s cool to check out the detail of a thing to see its hidden, non-obvious, beauty.  But it’s not cool to lose track of the whole that’s right in front of you.
