I love here how the picture goes from blurry to sharp, from left to right in the frame. And where it is sharp, you can see the structure of the leaf.
I used my new camera of the time, a Canon Powershot G9 to take this. The reason it is worthy of mentioning, is because sharp close-ups are really hard to do handheld. Especially on something like a leaf, which is nearly always slightly moving.
This photo also reminds me of a time when I spent a lot of time in Singapore. I loved walking in the backstreets. It is the only place I know where Borders Bookshop would fill on Friday and Saturday nights.
