"Remember how in that communion only, beholding beauty with the eye of the mind, he will be enabled to bring forth, not images of beauty, but realities (for he has hold not of an image but of a reality), and bringing forth and nourishing true virtue to become the friend of God and be immortal, if mortal man may." - Plato

I have been photographing mushrooms in the Corte Madera Park hiking area for two years.

This is photo is the first I saw and started my fascination with the life form.

The park is on Skyline Drive about half way between Hwy 92 and Woodside Road. All of the mushrooms I have photographed , I have left them as they were when I found them.
