I read this challenge on Saturday evening after going for two walks with my phone. The Future, how to portray it? The photo I’d like to share is of a burgeoning horse chestnut shoot. I had a little difficulty finding a fairly uncluttered background for this shot. The sticky buds have begun to reveal the furled palmate leaves and the flower buds, which I associate with the month of May. From this picture we can look forward a month to fully open leaves and trees with white or pink candles.
