Magical, it almost looks like a 'Lens Baby' shot . Well executed.

The story itself is worth a fav ! But the lighting is % amazing. Interesting shutter speed. I really should try things like this. I am truly loving this photograph.
@CreativeIsland replied: Hi Jenny. Thanks for the comment. I've recently discovered that relatively 'poor' lighting can yield impressive results with a longer shutter speed. The forest floor where I shot this was quite dark, hence the 3 sec shutter speed. Of course a tripod is an absolute necessity.

Oh Peter I laughed out loud when I saw this it is so well done!

Then along comes a "Picker," oh it is only a photographer, and life changes again...the plot thickens. I photographed some fungus the other day but didn't get involved in their personal lives...just snapped a few shots and ran... ;>) Love this, Peter, great fun in the morning! Will always look at fungus a little different!

Terrific capture Peter.

This is simply awesome, Peter! And a heart wrenching story to tie it all together. Great imagination and vision; superb composition!

The light and colour are outstanding, Peter. I too like your "family" interpretation of the scene. So many people let their lives play out on the internet....why should fungus be any different.

excellent macro with a very interesting interpretation of the scene :-) I always enjpy your creativity Peter or texts..

A young fungus cries on the shoulder of her boyfriend as she leaves her family behind. Her younger brother stands at the door hoping in vain that she will return. The baby sits at the feet of mom, dad, and gramma who all hold back tears, knowing full well that everyone has to leave home eventually.

Now playing in a forest near you. Rated F for Fungus.
