Look Ma! I'm on Bored Panda!

I Used My Scanner to Immortalize Leaves and Flowers

Bored Panda  7/13/16 by geonni gray banner

For the last ten years I have placed bits of the plants that grow all around me on my scanner to freeze the moment at which I found them. The things that lie on the ground are unnoticed by most. But I see them, am delighted by them and show them to others in a way that allows them to appreciate the common, and the overlooked. All of these things were picked up within 3 or 4 hundred yards of my front door in Pt. Richmond, California
