I’m extra glad you like this one, Ken. I worked on it more than I do on most of my photographs. This little nest of Leptothrix discophora film was in a place that was darkish, but I made it even darker around the edges. Doing that seemed to make the photograph look more like I what I felt in discovering it.

This has the feel of a secret spot where rituals are held by unseen beings. Your extra effort certainly paid off, Linda.

Alan, I’m so glad you mentioned the feel of this photograph. I don’t think many (any?) of my photos have a particular feel to them, but in this case, I was definitely going for the feeling, and I’m glad it shows. Thanks so much for noticing.

I like the tonal range in this image and the glistening centre of Leptothrix discophora, Linda. Beautiful.

Thank you, Andy. I processed the photo to try to emphasize that glistening center. I confess that this is the latest favorite of my own photographs.
