Some kind of mushroom …

Christopher RobinArts 865

Spring is here. Flowers and trees are bursting forth with the bright colors of new leaves and blooms. Down low, in last year’s leaf clutter or mulch, there is also much coming to life in a variety of fungi that is generally rather bland and uninteresting.

Every now and then a small bomb of color will go off against the drab. Get down and take a look and you may find something very interesting to photograph from a macro perspective. This tiny toadstool caught my eye late one evening while I was mowing.  The family of fairies living underneath scattered as soon as I got my camera; they are rather shy you know.

Photographer Chris and painter Robin Rohwer each week share a painting or photograph that captured their interest. They have a small studio and gallery in the Historic Phoenix Building, 418 South Gay Street. Email them at All works are copyright protected
