For my neighbourhood walk today I took the catwalk from my street to the creek and the first thing I discovered is these mica cap mushrooms. They’ve almost finished emerging from the soil.
Usually when I’m out hiking in autumn is when I tend to photograph these mushrooms. However, they’re starting to come up here and now so I must get some photos. Did you know that this type of mushroom is edible?
Apple Blossom on the Common Apple Tree
Apple blossoms are finally here! The little buds are opening and soon the trees will be covered in little white flowers. I can’t wait. Expect to see a lot of photos of these flowers.
I went out for my daily walk, camera in hand, and things are starting to look like spring out there. Browns are slowing turning into greens. Little buds are starting to emerge on the trees.
Spring is finally happening. Warmer weather is on its way! Woohoo! But its only just starting so photographically speaking there is still a bit of wait on some of the colours and the critters that should start coming out over the next couple of weeks and into summer.
One little critter who is out and about today is this neighbourhood cat. There’s a lady that likes to take her cat for walks around here and I saw her sitting on the stone bench as the cat explored the trees nearby. I love seeing them out – they make quite the cute pair.
Because I sometimes can’t get away from the house or I just don’t want to, I end up doing lot of neighbourhood photo walks. Which I’m sure you have noticed.
When I’m feeling uninspired I try to get myself out of the house and out into the parks around my home in search of that elusive inspiration or just to clear my head.
The parks in my area are essentially wild areas that they’ve decided to call parks with, of course, the occasional playground-type park sprinkled here and there. As you might guess my favourites are these wild areas.
These wild areas are where I find all sorts of things to photograph. Be it the flowers and mushrooms or sometimes people’s cast offs (which you’ve seen in previous posts). There is always something to spark the imagination.
Even if its not in colour.
What inspires you and helps you get out of a creativity funk?
