Leaves on the tree

Where does one leaf begin and another one end? In a photo like this some of the leaves are clearly outlined while others appear to blend together.

These can be created by any combination of the following:

  • sitting behind a desk
  • wearing formal clothes or a uniform
  • not talking about personal issues
  • keeping to the task in hand
  • knowing your own boundaries
  • having a professional attitude
