Mosaic Monday

Written By: Jenn - Aug• 09•09

*Apologies if you couldn’t get to me earlier today, the server needed to be rebooted for maintenance.

This is today’s submission for Mosaic Monday at Dear Little Red House.

Today I’m also going to be linking to Show and Tell Monday, who runs a fabulous Camera Tutorial every week – whether you know what you’re doing or not, it’s worth checking out:

Thought I’d do something a little simple this week – I wanted the shot in the background to show, and these 3 shots were my favourites. They were taken this past week after yet another bout of rain. There were 3 of these mushrooms, and they were ginormous! Bigger than a soccer ball.

The little fellow had his picture taken the next day. He doesn’t appear too upset about his missing foot – he got a quick sniff and kiss from Sadie (darn it, I missed that shot!) and then was off at full throttle when Wee One tried to grab him to test his princeliness.

    I love finding mushrooms…my husband has other ideas! He despises them lol. It’s a lawn obsession thing. Love the photo in the background for the mosaic.

    Wowiezowie, those are some big mushrooms! I love your use of a background image … that’s a really great idea. And of course, any mosaic w/ frogs and toads is the best … ;-)

    Wow, bigger than a soccer ball?! I think that would scare me a bit :) I love the mosaic, though, the black and white contrast nicely with the color. What a cool idea! (I got your link from A Familiar Path.)

    Very cool presentation. That rain’s been giving us mushrooms on our lawn but just wee ones. Cool that Kermit there still manages to get around without his foot.
