Check out this little fungi! This image was captured at a county fair in the fungus collection. I got lots of other photos of mushrooms of all different shapes and sizes but this ‘thing’ really intrigued me. It was about one foot around and I really wanted to reach out and touch it—but I refrained. I could here my mom telling me, “Look with your eyes, not with your hands.” (Please tell me your mom used to say that to you, too?)
I think this image would make an intriguing toner-based photo transfer as a start of a collage. I would probably start by printing it in a low density on a laser copier so that I could still easily layer collage elements on top.
I like using images like this that are cool but unrecognizable when made larger or taken out of context. What would you do with this fungal texture? Show us by uploading a picture here!
Happy Photo Friday!
