Funki Fungi

While these pictures  might seem the result of imbibing some ancient hallucinogenic concoction, I do assure you they’re simply the result of playing with ‘image-altering’ software. Enjoy . . .

    The blue-on-gold possible textile design gets my thumbs up. And while I did not see Jesus, the Inkcap in shocking pink somehow made me think of Cousin Itt from the U.S. TV series “The Addams Family.”

      I might have prefaced this series of images with a note to the effect that, while with the flowers in the summer my aim was to transform them into something ‘other’, and generally abstract, with these my intent was to keep the fungi’s form. Which, mostly, I have. My person favourite is the other Inkcap, the one that looks kinda ‘inky’, and like a litho-print or some such.
