Red is the Color

The Poisonous Mushroom


I have two reasons for posting this photo.
(1)The poisonous mushroom is always very photogenic.
(2)I took part in The Utata Color Story this summer.
Utata is a very active and fun flickr group. This photo project was based on colors. The idea was to pick one color and go out and shoot up to six photos with that particular color in mind. I choose red and quickly decided that I would shoot six portraits. You can see my Red project here. A month or so into the project I realised that I probably could do a few more colors, so in the end I did four colors. I will post links to the other color projects in the next few days.

nice one.
do you know whether you can eat red-colored mushrooms? i think you cannot, because the red is like a warning; im poisonous, but actually i really have no clue...

Steffe said...

I don't eat mushrooms ever. But I think you should stay away from the red ones.

Paul said...

Very nicely done Steffe! Yes I think you are right best to avoid eating any that look like this.
