Magical Mushrooms

Do yourself a favor and check out Steve Axford’s very impressive photographic collection of fungi photos. Wow – it’s hard to believe that any of these little specimens are actually from this planet. Most of these fantastical ‘shrooms are very seldom seen and some have never been photographed before. Oh, and yes, the colours are totally untouched (no Photoshop here).
Steve, you are a genius!

Originally spotted on This Is Colossal.

Shroom Lights

Only the Japanese could come up with something so delicate and lovely. Yukio Takano of The Great Mushrooming has hand crafted these super cool lamps. They are made from little LED’s that are embeded in intricatly crafted synthetic mushrooms “growing” out of natural wood.

I want one!

You can see more of his mushroom lights here (found via)

Colour Inspiration

Do you ever have days where the same colour keeps popping out at you everywhere? This happens to me often, once I have noticed said colour, I will keep seeing it everywhere – and I mean everywhere: TV ads, magazines, shop windows, business cards etc etc.

This week it has been the turn of an old favourite – purple. A dark and moody colour, full of mystery and intrigue. A colour you can almost touch and smell with your eyes.

As a tribute to the lingering heavy scent of purple, I have put together a mini collection of some of my favourite purple pics of the week.
