    I guess I’ll have to hang on to that 1/2 loaf bread for a while…

    Me to husband PeriRies: There is a moldy loaf of bread on the kitchen counter. Do NOT throw it away.
    PR: Why are we keeping a loaf of moldy bread?
    Me: I need to take a picture of it.
    PR: Why?
    Me: For an upcoming farktography contest.
    PR: You guys are weird.
    Me: Yes, I know.

    Sometimes there are benefits to being married to a fellow Farktographer.

    “Honey? If you’re not busy, could you go and buy me a fish?”

    “Can’t you just grab something at the supermarket”

    “No, they don’t have them with the heads on. I asked”.

    Also, I suspect one of Kat’s submissions will be something I spotted alongside the road. I pulled the car over, kids and all, and said “you’ll be wanting a picture of that”

    😉

    We’ve had an explosion of toadstools in our complex’s yard after they’ve been watering the winter grass. I got a few pictures of them over the last couple of days while watching them grow/change. Yesterday some young boys busted up a couple of the bigger ones while I was out there, so I bitched them out a bit. But, I actually got some nice shots of the underbellies. Then today some other rugrats ran their dang bicycles over the other ones. STAY OFF MY LAWN YA LITTLE BRATS!!! 😈

    Glad you mentioned that, kashari–I’ll have to dig for it, but there was the most beautiful translucent toadstool a couple months ago that I captured–I might need it for this contest!!

    (In other news, I’ll be up near Flagstaff tomorrow, for ‘Autumn’, ‘Travel Photography’, and whatever else I can get–lichens will probably be among them. *Must remember to bring the Darlot for macro…*)

    They don’t sell whole fish at your local supermarket??

    My head has officially assploded.

    How can you eat the eyes, if they don’t sell the heads?

    We had a big grouping of white toadstools, when they opened it was like a little UFO colony had landed. The gnomes & fairies will be sad tonight that their special places were destroyed by the rotten little humans! 😥

    Then there are big groups of small brown ones, I’ve never seen so many, it’s really weird.

    I think you’ll maybe have better luck up North than I did, they’ve had colder nights lately.

    I’ve been digging, but I can’t find that picture series yet.

    *drat* This is the problem with 25K pictures and no organization to them.

    I’m hoping for at least autumn colors. The lichens will be a gimme, as may some mosses. Molds and shrooms, not so much, perhaps.

    I suggested something like this in 2007, and have been sitting on the pics since then 😀 Didn’t stop me taking wifey out on a hunt for new shots at the weekend, though…gives “dirty weekend” a whole new meaning.

    I guess maybe I did. I got some outstanding shots with the AD macro (lichen and mosses, in particular).

    Now I have to whittle the selection of 15 or so down to three (well, two are near certain to have been chosen already, but the third choice will be a challenge.)

    And there’s always that chance of total failure at the polls anyway, lol.

    (p.s., a couple of the ‘really good but not as good as them other ones’ are in the gallery posted tonight.)
