get in there and zoom in
We are lucky enough to be part of a group of families who share a weekly fruit and veg shop, its pretty simple, each week one family goes out to the flemmo markets and does battle at a ungodly hour and returns with a variety of fruit and vege for the group, this is then divided up and each party picks up their share of the loot :)
I am pretty sure alot of people have been to the flemington markets and would appreciate its like a warzone if you get there at the wrong time :) that said you can get there pretty early and it seems to be bearable :) This week was our turn and Chaos was rather excited since it was just her and myself getting up at 5am, me not so much so :) . She was quite amazed when i did promptly wake her up since normally shes the first to wake in our household, which then means she has free reign of the TV, chocolate, and anything else of a contraband type :) .
Anyways, with a dazed chaos on board the trolley we scoped out the plethora of market holders and planned our attack, starting with some safe numbers like the apples and plums we then moved in for the real goods, bargain box of mushrooms (just before a restaurant dude cleaned out the entire stall), vine tomatoes (tray), lettuce, spring onions, yellow and red capsicums, cherry tomatoes, corn, pears, cucumbers and the list goes, we also got to see a pretty epic sunrise too but there was no time for that, after two trips to the car and two trolley rides through the carpark (we overtook most of the cars waiting ;) ) we were done and doing battle with the carpark traffic, yep even at silly oclock the parking is a nightmare…
So, after doing up our boxes I had some time to wait and took a few shots :) my camera was feeling unused after that sunrise :)
I don't reckon you could arrange a Terrarium scene better than this :) perched about 3 foot off the ground on the side of a fern trunk was this red little fungi, I wish I had taken a wide angle shot to give it all some context, but for now you'll have just do with my dodgy description :) needless to say, it was a fairly easy little fungi to spot and was one of the first I noticed walking down this track, its crazy just to see where these things spawn from and more impressively where they survive, albeit only for several days.
Its another world down there on the bush floor, in the space of a few square metres the number of diverse (that's my politicially correct way of saying it) fungi striking a blow for freedom is amazing, all of which you would miss unless you stop and get down to the ground level and look around.
This fungi was particularly colourful and caught my eye for looking like a bunch of hands reaching up out of the ground, a excellent image for some kids bedtime stories when they refuse to go to sleep ;)
This is one location where you cannot move around alot given that you have only several square metres of rock to stand on and its pretty well straight down cliffs either side, hence getting some variation in the views can really only be done with going wider, or getting tighter, which this shot is.
