A bassist playing at the Southside Shuffle in Port Credit, ON, pays tribute to Bob Babbitt.

Bob Babbitt (born Robert Kreinar; November 26, 1937 – July 16, 2012) was an American bassist, most famous for his work as a member of Motown Records' studio band, the Funk Brothers, from 1966–1972. Also in 1968–1970, with Mike Campbell, Ray Monette and Andrew Smith he formed the band Scorpion. Babbitt traded off sessions with original Motown bassist James Jamerson.
Babbitt's most notable bass performances include "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" by Stevie Wonder, "War" by Edwin Starr, "The Tears of a Clown" by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" and "Inner City Blues" by Marvin Gaye, "Band Of Gold" by Freda Payne, "Ball of Confusion (That's What the World Is Today)", and "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)" by The Temptations.

He participated in hundreds of other hits, including "Little Town Flirt" by Del Shannon, "I Got a Name" by Jim Croce, "Midnight Train to Georgia" by Gladys Knight & the Pips, "Scorpio" by Dennis Coffey & the Detroit Guitar Band, and "The Rubberband Man" by The Spinners. He played on the Jimi Hendrix album Crash Landing. He accepted an offer from Phil Collins to perform on his album of Motown and 1960s soul classics "Going Back" and also appears in Phil's Going Back live concert DVD. He appeared onstage in an episode of American Idol, backing up Jacob Lusk's performance of "You're All I Need To Get By" for AI's Motown Week in March 2011. (Wikipedia)

This shot is of something very simple: some dead leaves on a small stalk, along the banks of the Credit River in Mississauga, ON, Canada.
The treatment is multilayered textures, courtesy of Anna Lenabem's generous gifting of her layers. It's an attempt to turn something unnoticeable into something abstract and perhaps a bit unusual.
