I am always happy to find some fungi. They are amazing bits of nature. They grow so quietly. They often sprout up overnight. One minute there is nothing and the next morning there are two little mushroom sentinels standing watch over a small hillside in Chiba prefecture.
I love having to enter into their world. This means, it is rather rare to run into some fungi that are at my eye level. I need to lower my eye line down to the shrooms size. Getting down on my knees and into the blades of grass to photograph them.
I want to see what those shrooms are seeing.
I want to feel what they are feeling.
In order to do this I need to enter into their micro world.
It is good for all of us to be able to change our perspective on the world. The world looks mighty different when you are eye to eye with blades of grass and these two little sentinels. The macro and the micro go hand in hand and shape our view of all the stimuli that makes up the world. We learn to perceive, process, and interact with that world.
