My favorite movies were the science ones, especially the ones where time lapse photography was used. Even now, as I think about it, I can still see that green bean going from seed to full blown plant in thirty seconds and hear the click, click, rat-tat-tat of the projector.
As an homage to those days I decided to document something I happened upon last Tuesday. I was out in the yard when, out of the corner of my eye, I saw what I thought was a huge pile of acorns. I turned and looked more closely and saw that it was a mass of mushrooms growing around a stump. At that very moment, I decided that I must photograph it each day so I could see how long it took for the clump of mushrooms to reach its zenith.
Day one, Tuesday, October 4
Day two, Wednesday, October 5
Day three, Friday, October 7 (I didn't get home until after dark on Thursday, ergo, no pics)
I love the last two shots, it looks as if the wind has caught their skirts and we see their petticoats.
Okay, I also missed yesterday. I was a bit tied up NCIS-ing as well as chaperoning/catering a youth dance at the church.
But, I did take pictures today. I must add a warning, if you're squeamish, don't look cause it ain't pretty...and I didn't even include the shot that had maggots in it. And, it's a good thing you can't smell through a computer, the smell was a bit ripe. TMI?
Day four, Sunday, October 9
Well, there you have it, my homage to time lapse photography. Isn't nature fascinating?
