In the course of tidying up our pool courtyard, we were cutting off dead banana leaves and when I saw them lying in a pile on the concrete, I wondered if a photo of some of them might work as an interesting base for some digital explorations. I seriously doubt that many people have had so much fun with dead banana leaves, but I surely did. The interesting curves and textures that they have really lent themselves to some very cool outcomes. Below is an example of what resulted. I’ll be posting a variations series as well, so check out the variation tab on my site too. The title came from the four darker areas that reminded me of owls, but that’s just my own personal pareidolia.
