Black & White Fungal Abstractions

Being winter there aren't many mushrooms in the frozen woods, and not much color either. But, if one looks hard and long enough, subjects reveal themselves. Black and white is a good medium for abstraction, since the mushrooms are usually a washed-out faded memory of their once vibrant glory. Here's some of what I'm finding.

Old Oysters, Pleurotus ostreatus

Daedalea quercina, Thick-maze Oak Polypore

Xylobolus frustulatus, Ceramic Parchment
