Magical Mushrooms.

Work in progress. Mushroom spotting. Did a montage of pebbles on a beach. Wanted to try a montage of fungi. Was given a guide to the various types of mushrooms one might come across on a forest ramble.Am trying to recognise the ones that might kill one outright. If one chose to pick and eat something growing on a forest floor. Like some old crone in an MR James story. A right and proper warning to the curious. I am not attempting to communicate with Terrence Mc Kenna on some ethereal plain. a mushroom growing in a forest in northern Ireland does not have the veneer of an aid to otherworldly thinking that one growing in the Amazon basin may endow. I am more shambolic than shamanic.
