This is no metaphor

I was asked what I want to say with this photo. I didn't take this picture because I was trying to say something through these leaves. I took the photo because I liked the way all that green moved against a blue background. The photographer Garry Winogrand (1928-1984) claimed that a photograph is a new fact. That is true. He said: “I don't have anything to say in any picture. My only interest in photography is to see what something looks like as a photograph.”
