I freely admit to having no excuse for this post other than that I like the photos – but I’m allowed a random, dumb post every now and again, right? Right? Anyway, at the risk (probably a 100% guaranteed kind of risk) of sounding odd, I like fungi.
Maybe it’s a failure of imagination on my part, but I struggle to see how anyone could not find this stuff – found covering the stump of a felled tree – at least mildly appealing. I mean – check out the colours, the texture, the curves. Nature really deserves to win the Turner Prize one year. I’d rather look at this stuff than pretty much every arty video installation I’ve ever seen. Which isn’t a huge number, admittedly.
