I was reading a photography tips book, and the author suggested that the place to find great flowers to photograph was at the flower market – where all the subjects were young, dewy, and fresh (I’m greatly paraphrasing.) It struck me that there is lots of other beauty around, and since its winter, much plant life is ‘in decline’. I found wonderful things in my garden, in decline and beautiful.
This completely whole piece of lichen, or fungus (?) – I’m not a botanist – had landed on the lawn. Apparently just itself. I picked it up and laid it on another surface, and looked closely. Little bugs started crawling out of it and walking away.
This “object” reminds me of the ocean, but it’s all terrestrial.
