a natural phase
Some people might call it a creative rut. Others might call it an obsession.
But I like it.
It started with a particularly sweet spot of natural light and nice, clean background. I had a few natural finds I’ve been wanting to photograph, and once I started I couldn’t stop. I ended up going through every mushroom, every stick and stone, every little thing I’ve accumulated from a lifetime of loving the woods.
When I was done with my own collection, I raided my mother’s.
I even used Yorick for a photograph I especially like.
And I finally had a practical use for all the mushrooms I’ve collected and dried.
And when Little Bit brought me a fresh one, I couldn’t wait to photograph it as well.
I’ve had almost too much fun with all this, and since my last hike in the woods with Little Bit yielded some interesting finds, I feel another batch of pictures coming on. Possibly two.
And until this latest obsession wears off (and it hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down yet), I recommend keeping your natural finds under lock and key.
My mom certainly is.
