Symbiosis.

I'm going to miss the lush, green forest when I move to California in a month.

 

This is probably my fifth attempt to create a photograph with mushrooms in the last year, so I'm glad one has finally turned out decently.

 

I like to think of this in conjunction with this photo and this photo of mine. They're almost a sort of series featuring thin, long-limbed creatures in natural environments with dark, strong colors, and an anonymous subject.

    These greens in this are lovely, Alex! I don't know how you do it.
    I love the way you're sitting and staring at the mushrooms too, it gives the photo a more confused feel.

    This is an incredible image. Where in CA? There are some lush places. We're always talking about going to Fern Canyon (in the Redwoods) one of these days for a shoot. You ought to google it!. Part of one of the Jurassic Park movies was filmed there. Even in my current town of Redding I discovered lush greenery during certain months...

    I've enjoyed following your work these last few months. You're very talented!
