I was filling the car up with gas after work and noticed a box by the gas pump. It’s not the typical trash you see – usually there are soda cans or food wrappers but not a box of tomatoes.

That’s where I found reddish colored mushrooms—which I had never seen before and haven’t seen anywhere else. It reminds me of the mushrooms in Super Mario Brothers. ————————————————————————————————————— This photo is part of an ongoing series of mushroom photos in my collection. (I like to take photos of objects that most people overlook.) Notes about photo: This photo was taken with a Sony DSC-H2– a great … Continue reading Mushrooms as Art
