Fun with fungi…

Magickal mushrooms;

fascinatingly freaky,

elegant brown caps…

Community of fungi,

nestled in the grass –

hidden in plain sight!

Photo taken with my Samsung Monte mobile phone… and then altered in Photoshop CS2, using blending modes and textures from Nancy Donaldson. Many thanks!

Join in the fun and read some great haikus, in fine company at Haiku my Heart Friday, hosted by the wonderful Rebecca of Recuerda mi Corazon.

  16. I like what you did with the photos. Fascinating.

  17. are you sure we are not twins separated at birth? LOL!! i also have such a preference for mushrooms and i´m creeping through the woods and taking pictures at the ground getting all my trousers wet;)
    love your processings!! (still working on my nancy-textures…)

    • Lol! We may well be twins, in spirit! I have always had a “penchant” for fungi… When we lived in Luneburg, there were so many on the Heide and we never took pics of them then. Shame, really!

      I too am still working on the Nancys… I do love her thick waxy textures though. 😉
