This is a place holder if I don’t get the opportunity to capture a better image due to being away from easy internet access

I was really scratching my head for an idea this week, but realised the most delicate thing we have is life, and our seasons give rise to changes in life. A tree sacrifices its leaves each Autumn (Fall) to preserve energy, a delicate balance played out every year.
This maple leaf has served its purpose and now discarded.
This is part of my wife's collection of little piggy's, these are the unfortunate ones who have missing parts, I focused on the "see no evil" (they think they are the 3 wise monkeys) one who has lost his ears.
The set up was just to place them on a large black tile I purchased a while ago especially for photography. I used a tripod and slow shutter speed and just used the lights in the room to avoid any shadows or distractions.
