Well, technically they aren’t mushrooms or magic, but they look cool. These toadstools were growing in the shade of a tree down by Lake Okaraka near Rotorua. I couldn’t help but photograph them early in the morning under the dew. I’ve also cheated and put up three photos, for the purposes of art i’ll call them a triptych. I thought they worked well in a series 🙂
Life seems to be remarkable like that, where other things decay, life can spring forth. Its a balance of fragility and robustness that almost doesn’t make sense. Yet we have to live with it all around us, Life and decay, fragility and robustness, beauty and ugliness.
Life is full of contrasts.

As we move into Autumn, we prepare for winter and are then greeted by spring. In many ways, being on chemo, I’m in the Autumn of my life, preparing for the Winter. I’m just not entirely sure that there will be a spring though.
Sometimes the seasons come to an abrupt end, lets hope I might get to glimpse some spring.
