Toadstool or Mushroom?

For the latest iteration of Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – It’s All About Nature – I’ve chosen this toadstool (or is it a mushroom?) that I found growing by the side of the road near Chansigaud. In real life, it’s a creamy colour, but the monochrome brings out the texture (note especially the jagged edges) very well, I think.

Still Life With Mushrooms

This is an image of a wooden sculpture of a group of mushrooms. It’s really cleverly done, as the individual mushrooms are detachable, and very tactile. The monochrome brings out the textures of the wood quite well, I think.
