Why do I love to take pictures of mushrooms? That's a question I've been thinking about since I took this photo. What is it about them that makes me grab my camera? After all they are very common and not beautiful like flowers! What really draws me to them? Is it their shape? Their details? Their color? Is it because they're small and I like macro photography? Yes, to all of the above, but I don't think that's all! I think the child in me loves the magic that mushrooms bring to mind. I see one and my imagination immediately kicks into gear and I wonder if a wood sprite or a fairy or even a gnome lives under the mushroom. Under this mushroom would be a pretty spot to live surrounded by lovely woodland violets.
I've been told I'm a child at heart. And that is a good thing! I don't want to be old and staid! I want the simple things in life to bring me joy. I want to smile and laugh. I want to play, especially with my grandsons. I want to live my life looking for the positive and for a little touch of magic!
