Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



In the heart of stylish downtown Boston, flows the Charles River where an old log washes up on shore to become the unexpected urban home for three tenacious mushrooms.

Dedicated to Manon Boily, talented artist, generous RB Host, inspiring friend to fellow artists and, of course, photographer extraordinaire of all things fungi. Thank you Manon!

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    Gorgeous shot, Sylvia, & good on you for giving this to the deserving Manon.

  • Thanks Sheila! I love finding such undeniable evidence of Nature at work right in the middle of the city. And you are so right, Manon is more than deserving. ;-)

    you are so very sweet Sylvia! I am simply honored an surely speachless. It’s because of nice people like you that I stay on RB because I thought one hundred times to leave this website. thank you one thousand times xx

    I can say I love that picture with the soft colors and light. a real delight for my eyes.

    thank you Lynn and Artwhiz ;)

  • So glad you like my small contribution to your fascinating world of Fungi & Mushrooms! I don’t often see them so when I spotted these in the city, I’d learned through your work that I had to photograph them. And I know what you mean… gone is the great spirit, fun and heart that once fueled RB. So I cherish and appreciate even more, wonderful souls like you who keep me smiling, inspired and creating every day. ;-) Thank you for this and everything Manon!
