Pics for Consideration for GEAG
Hi. The other day some friends and I went to Centennial Park here in town. Two of the four of us had our cameras with us, and were lagging behind, because we kept finding things to photograph. The park is lovely, with a sturdy wooden bridge leading onto a long, winding path through the forest.
March's GEAG meeting is coming up in a week or so, and I can't decide which photo to enter into the competition. I have 3 I am considering. So, I decided to let ya'll look at them and have a say. Thanks for looking, and for commenting. It is much appreciated!!!
Last month I joined the Missouri Mycological Society, and I went on my first foray last Saturday. Now, for anyone who got lost when they read the word Mycology, that is the study of fungi, especially mushrooms. What we did on the foray was walk in the woods looking for any sort of mushroom. Didn't matter what it looked like or if it was edible or poisonous. Just take as much as it looks like you can eat. When we were done hunting for mushrooms, we came back and put them on a convenient rock, identified and named them.
My favorite (that someone else found) is the Lactarius Indigo . It's very big, very blue, and very edible.
Learning the new camera
Done for the day.
And finally a shot that would have make my co-workers wonder about my sanity if they saw it. We were pouring concrete at work.

Cross Country Road Trip
Shooting from the car was the norm on this trip, like these pictures from West Texas of a tree and an oil well. This is a railside grain mill also in West Texas, which we left to drive through the middle of nowhere and observe a very memorable sunset in New Mexico. Occasionally, I'd get out of the car and get to shoot Elana and Bisous having fun on a beach in the redwoods, or an eerie moonrise. There are many beautiful shots of the redwood forests, but I picked these mossy trees and this tiny mushroom for an illustration of scale.
