A cow, forest, fondness of fungi, and frontyard fun

I would've call this a word-less post but, the title is a bit wordy already so I'll elaborate. Something we don't get too much of in my part of Kansas is fungi. It's really interesting to me. Have been thinking about buying some mushrooms to grow in the closet this winter to fight the doldrums...This just might be the year that I order that box kit from one of the garden catalogs.

In case you don't see my stuff on facebook, here it is.

Below are my raku pieces from a firing on October 11th. Raku firing: The pyrometer has to reach 1,800 degrees F.

Gingeroot Photography Workshop

Last Tuesday I attended a photography workshop. As you can tell, I don't take that many portrait-type pictures and wanted to get more familiar with this.

I was pleasantly surprised that Lora, a friend of a mutual friend, signed up for it, too! It was great getting to know her better and meeting other shutter buggers, I mean bugs! I got some good tips and even tried to pose a model. Now I need to practice more. Who wants to be the first in line?
