We went for a lovely walk in the warm November sunshine this morning and I collected some treasures to photograph. It gave me an excuse to use the wonderful marbled paper I found in an antique book as the background. I think it works really well. The lichen seem to have an underwater feel - might be a starting point for some seaside themed art work in the future. The toadstools were photographed on the insides of old books and I really like the foxing marks on the background of the last two photos as it reminds me of the marks on leaves as they start to deteriorate.
