Weekly Photo Challenge: Textures

Location: Sofia, Bulgaria
After checking in at our hotel in Sofia early that afternoon, I decided to visit the nearby park to get a feel for the place. While walking around, I saw something that appeared to be a cluster of horse’s poop. When I got closer, I found them to be wild mushrooms.

Back home, it would appear so familiar to elicit much interest. But in that moment, I felt it offered more. Its color and texture filled my senses with something beautiful and delightful that I immediately grabbed my pocket camera and took a picture.

It’s what traveling to places that you’d never been before gives you. It has the power to transform. It can change your perspective making even the most mundane look special.

    You’re so right! Sometimes I try to look at my ordinary neighborhood the way a tourist might see it. Those mushrooms look lovely!
