Fungus Still Life

Made to be viewed On Black larger

 

I don't usually try to make my pics look "like a painting", as I want them to be like a photograph, and like to do the very minimum of post processing.

But this one, a very straight photo, does remnd me a bit of the small still life paintings of 300 and 400 years ago. The painters aimed to make the objects tactile.
