Saturday Snapshot -- Leaves in Paint

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
I'm trying to notice unusual things around me. When I rode my bike to Target last weekend, I saw something I never would have noticed if I'd driven.

The road crews use machines to paint lines along the road. And here, apparently, some leaves got stuck on the roller, leaving their outline in the road stripe. You can also see a faint outline of them to the right of the line too.
I felt like I'd found a modern-day fossil.
I don't why we don't use leaf patterns in our road lines anyway.

That is so interesting and I agree with you - they should use those in a pattern. Would make it much more appealing. LOL

The leaves offer something unique...I think you're on to something. They should do this regularly!

Thanks for sharing.

I don't know why we don't use leaf designs either. They are wonderful.

What a great find! White lines would be a lot of interesting with images like that in them! :)

This is a very cool photo. Too bad it didn't happen more often.

That is so pretty! Very neat that you noticed it!

That is really cool! Would make for some very decorative lines on the road.

Here's my snapshot.

Linda said...

Very cool. I like it.

Nice find. A little bit of street art. We do tend to see more detail when not stuck in the car in traffic.
