[jules' pics] Lichen 'n' stuff

Nature Geoscience said last week that lichen 'n' stuff is really important (see here). Up until now I have kept lichenish shots hidden away, as I didn't think anyone else would be interested. But now you are *supposed* to be interested!

Luckily, super-clean is not the only Japanese aesthetic, but sometimes a very particular level of dilapidation is cultured, and it is in such places that lots of lichen 'n' stuff may be found [Myohonji, Kamakura].

I've been photographing lichens for years. They're fascinating and provide some interesting shots especially if you have a good macro lens or macro-feature on your camera.

Check out Brodo et al's Lichens of North America book if you want to see some gorgeous pics of lichens as well as being the definitive guide to North American lichens.
