On a cloudy autumn afternoon, an Asian American woman in her 30s holds a huge orange maple leaf in front of her. The emphasis and focus of the photo is on the veins of the brittle leaf rather than her face, which is soft and out of focus. Bushes and trees in autumn colors are behind her. This woman wears plus-size clothing and has short hair and is wearing a red scarf and white winter jacket. She’s looking away from the camera, at the leaf she’s holding, with a neutral expression or slight smile.
