…except this one was here on home turf. It rained all day up in Florida along the Cold river:
Taken out of my car window at lunchtime.
After work I headed to Greenfield by the back roads – the drizzle was too nice to miss. I didn’t find the right place to shoot until the atmospherics had mostly dissipated, but the “wet paint” effect was still on along this gravel road:
I was playing with Elliot, laying his plane of sharp focus vertically instead of horizontally. Does it show in that road shot?
This was in upper Shelburne in a maple grove without much understory:
I actually pulled over to photograph this grove before I noticed the light on the road. And in parking, I navigated around this oyster mushroom bloom on a stump:
It was a short but sweet stop along the road in classic New England weather.
I dug it.

‘K, so it’s the growing season again, and I’m in hot pursuit of local, organic, wild edibles.
‘Cause you know, I’m really not a big fan of Monsanto’s genetically-fucked-up Frankenfood.
And a carbon footprint of, um, ZERO sounds great to me.
So I was pleased to find these delicate beauties along the road on my way home from work on Friday:
Yeah, those are oyster mushrooms. And they’re about to be consumed by slugs, or “Berkshire Escargot,” as they’re locally known.
Well, let me tell you, I put the brakes on that action by, uh, harvesting them for my personal consumption. ‘Cause you know, if your incarnations go through incremental changes, it takes a lot longer to get to heaven!
