Staying Local

Shrooming

Seasons slowly change and I’m still discovering all the places around this city that I’ve missed. A few walks through Stark Park and out to Battery Point on Massabesic Lake revealed some scenic views and also gave me a case of poison ivy on my legs. Of these images, my favorite is the mushroom. Late day sun was shining through the forest and emphasizing the large white cap, and while I wasn’t carrying a tripod (I wish I had been) I steadied myself enough to snap a few shots. In post processing, I tried to bring out a surreal feel to things, almost to the point where it started to remind me of Alice in Wonderland, but maybe that’s just me. In the end, I have two more locations that I wouldn’t hesitate to return to for a shoot or even just a walk, provided I avoid the poison ivy next time.
