Bidding Brodie Helmets

Every one of them is wearing a Brodie helmet, a heavy piece of metal mottled in the color of the surrounding, that might have been collected since British Colonization in Malaysia back in the nineteenth century. 


If bidders start placing bids, these helmets should worth a fortune as an antique, and it is sure a terrific business possibility.


One shall not think hiking is just one of those exercise activities. The first pot of gold can be scooped once mind starts to wander, as you are wandering.

Life is great.

My adventure is just like what you said here: "One shall not think hiking is just one of those exercise activities."

They are little beauties, and your "wandering thought" is fantastic..

betchai said...

I was going to say...
"I love your imagination."
However, that is exactly what your first commenter said :)
I do love your words
because they add so much to the post.
Great job...again!

You have such a way with capturing such beautiful things in nature.

Fabulous photos!

Too bad these little helmets aren't worth a fortune that I know . Then you could make a lot of money and I could say I know a rich guy.

RNSANE said...

They do look like an army of little soldiers!!!

Ann said...

can eat? U hiding in the jungle instead of wearing yellow?

Great find. I wonder how would these mushrooms look like in a more defused light.

Ginnymo said...

Hello! Beautiful post with wonderful photos!

Giga said...

To trzeba mieć wyobraźnię, żeby kapelusze grzybów porównać do kasków :-). Zdjęcia również ciekawe. Pozdrawiam.
It must have the imagination to compare the mushroom hats helmets :-). Photos also interesting. Yours.

AVCr8teur said...

Why are all the mushrooms wearing a Brodie helmet? Do they know something we don't. Did you wear one after seeing them? :D

Cheryl said...

They really do look like those flat helmets! Lots to go around.

Malay-Kadazan girl said...

Are those mushroom type edible? I wonder if you also pick mushrooms when hiking Cerok Tokun.

Diane AZ said...

Your imagination puts the FUN in fungi!

Betty Manousos said...

just stopping by to say hi!

have a great thursday!

EG CameraGirl said...

Wonderful! I like your idea of each of these mushrooms wearing a helmet.

Steve E said...

Helmet or not--grin! ...I like to hike alone. For one thing, I can take my time, rather than always having to speed along, or play 'catch-up.

Reason(s) are that i DO like to stop when *I* want to 'see' more of something, examine, shoot photos, etc.

Other thing is, at my age I CANNOT keep up with other Peeps, no matter how slow they go.

So I may catch them on their way back down the mountain.
PEACE!

PS WHO am I kidding--grin!??? Last time I took a hike was one year ago, and all level ground, and I got overheated, and, and, well...you know!

A little bit of spray paint and it'd look just like the real thing. :D Nice mushroom shots. :)
