Cee’s FOTD Challenge: September 16, 2022

Thank goodness I captured these yesterday. Some philistine mowed them down this morning. You can imagine my shock and outrage. People just don’t know what they are doing. I have to cling to that thought whenever I see a wanton act of destruction, the rubbing out of life, or beauty, which are often one and the same. These were growing near that little patch of pointy mushrooms. Maybe they were they exact same species, just in different stages of life. As they were slightly downhill from the big pointy ones, I am assuming that these were the progeny of the older ones. I can’t help but hope their spores spread far and wide to the delight of other people who can appreciate a beautiful mushroom, a lowly fungus!

Flower of the Day

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
