Rough-stalked Feather-moss

Rough-stalked Feather-moss

We prize red because it is the colour of ripe fruits, promising sweetness. I’ve never tasted Rough-stalked Feather-moss, the name alone puts you off. I don’t think it’s sweet, but the red sporangia still signify ripeness.

I don’t think I’d make it as a reindeer.

The Chain

The Chain

And if you don’t love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain.

I shot this against a variety of backgrounds. Unexpectedly, the plain black and white backgrounds produced boring images while the red-on-red version I thought would never work was the best. Makes the pain of having to eat a Lindor mini Easter egg to get the red foil for the bokeh wall worthwhile.
