Misty Morning Mushrooms
Walking outside this morning I came across a pair of rather large and interesting looking mushrooms. I’m no expert on mushrooms, so I have no idea what kind they are, but they’re kind of pretty. I took these pictures with my cell phone, so they’re not terribly high quality, but I have to say I appreciate the fact that my little phone is small enough to fit underneath a mushroom and take a picture from below. That’s a virtue I can’t overlook. A big bulky camera couldn’t do that.
There’s something kind of profound and poetic about mushrooms. Some of the prettiest ones are found growing on dead trees and in dank, dark places. They’re peculiar little forms of life for sure. They’re not traditionally pretty, like flowers, and people don’t make bouquets out of them, but they show a different side of beauty, like life once again sprouting out of death in a strange, new form. Or something like that. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the photos. They would probably look better with a little Photoshopping, but for now I’m leaving them as is.
