Today was a fun day. One of the highlights was climbing onto the roof to repaint the dormer. That was a first for me.
Most of my day was spent outside repainting and helping with roof repair. I think it was when I was standing on the ladder at some point that I got the idea to take a mini nature walk in my own little backyard, see what I can see.
I know that a lot of the stuff I photographed is considered ordinary (and in the case of the weeds and the ‘shrooms, even nuisances to some) but there’s something about looking at it all through a camera lens; none of it’s really garden variety to me.
I thought the mushrooms came out kind of neat. There are just a few of them in the backyard and you actually wouldn’t even know they were there if you weren’t looking. Funny how fungus can fascinate me so. . . Although there are some seriously awesome mushrooms out there, you know? As of today it has become my personal mission to photograph them all. I should get cracking.
