It's Winter

I left summer to embrace winter. Yes, this happened in a click and with a lot of heat and perspiration.
Mushrooms were inevitably surrounded by gloomy soft winter light and rims of frost covered their edges.
They made a stump the shelter, but the stump itself withered because from every angle wind was blustering. Its skin wrinkled, it shivered.
It was just a camera trick but I did not intend to get summer back for the moment.

Winter never visits the equator, but it was winter now, right in a Sunday morning.

Say Cheese

Giving it a camera, the monkey started to take selfie which went viral in Internet; what will happen to mushrooms?

Google, in the future many years, will tell us that there are hundreds of built-in micro biological cameras within the mushrooms. They take thousands of million-pixel pictures which will be shared when propagation takes place.

The nasal hairs that make me a sloppy fool, the wrinkles that unveil your age and sticky eye gum  fresh from last night sleep can never escape from these macro view of candid shots.

Not surprisingly, the impossible is possible when Google tells us more.

Action and Reaction

It has been my habit to hike with the DSLR strapped round my wrist, and my eyes synchronise not in series but in parallel to my footsteps. There are forces emitted from my sides that have my heart giving my brain its vision.

I always bookmark these places for the round trip when my camera will depend less on the steadiness of my hands. My brain has the vision but lacks of good memory. I usually lose some of the mushrooms in the end.

Mushrooms are small, their attraction is gigantic.

Newton told us that for every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size, but opposite in direction, but he forgot to mention for every beautiful attraction there is a photographic reaction that is greater in size and opposite in direction.

This is the beautiful and soft Fourth Law.

Black Corals

Some snails try to appreciate flowers like we do, while some mushrooms never look like mushrooms. They are named coral mushroom, though do not look exactly like a coral.

I have no knowledge about them days earlier. This is the fun of hiking, and is blogosphere. We meet each other, and call ourselves friends. The more I explore, the more surprises I get.

These black coral mushrooms “produce tubular, unbranched fruit bodies that typically grow in clusters” because they too need friends.

They stroll with upper bodies leaning forward and always have an eye on their steps.

They behave less like mushrooms.

My mind had gone blank in an exam again. Panic. Sweated so much. 

To my relief, I woke up to find that it was just a dream.

I am still awake while hiking at Cerok Tokun. Wide awake to day-dream.

Some mushrooms have a big head, other a thin one. Is intelligence the size of a brain? Does their heart gives the brain its vision? Do they spend most of the time day-dreaming like me?

Do they have exams in their world? 

Those must be a nightmare for they are sweating in most of the time when I meet them.
