Water Orbs
Originally, when they were more simplistic and less abstract, I simply referred to them as water orb images or images of water. In those earlier images it was always quite clear what the subject matter was (rain, dew, mizzle, mist and the like on plants and other things I encountered out in the 'duff' while hunting mushrooms). Mostly I captured the round orb shape of droplets, either as solitary water droplets or as massed droplet groupings as found often after and during the heavy heavy mist (mizzle) or dews that frequently occur in this region (Santa Cruz mountains of California). While the reflections, transmissions and lensing of the light caused each individual print to be very different from another, the subject matter from a more objective viewpoint was technically apparent.

Orbscapes
Then, as I worked more to explore this genre, the images became more abstracted from the more obvious state of dewdrops on foliage. The fact that they were water became less and less obvoius. More and more people were asking me if they were actually paintings rather than photographs. Many could not discern the subject matter that resulted in the photograph. However, the fundamental aspect or the orb and arc of water, dew and rain drops still in my mind at least domninated the images. Many of them I chose were very much like miniature landscapes with sky, rolling hills, seasons, horizons and all the things I saw in my more traditional landscape photography of the California oaks, oak savannas and hilldsides. I then started to refer to them collectively as 'orbscapes' thematically and as a descriptor for individual images. This was based mostly on the final images and had no real reference to the actual subject matter. This has always bothered me a little bit.

Abstract Water Photography of C Ribet

Dewscapes and Mizzlescapes
Recently, I have been searching for a name for these classes of images that is a hybrid that crosses between the actual tangible subject matter and the abstract photographic images that can result. My current feelings are to call these dewscapes or mizzlescapes because that marries the visual aspect of many of the final images (however abstract, often I can still imagine to myself some '-scape' aspect if you will), with the physicality of the subject matter (the collection of water from dew, winter mizzle of Northern California redwood forests and the like). I like the fact that these two terms combine the physical and the virtual and that they are ambiguous enough to encompass more of the images as a general classification than names previously which I had imagined. I may try to in the future use these terms, but still find myself in 'orbscape' frame of mind and will likely try to merge the concepts over time.

C Ribet Mushroom Art Photographs

The mushroom kingdom is very diverse, and the wild mushroom pictures you see at this site only represent a very few of the various kinds of wild mushrooms and fungi which I photograph for the raw material from which to create the final mushroom art prints for the wild mushroom art gallery. Most of the fungus and mushroom pictures you see here (click the Back or Next arrows to navigate through the on-line slide show of mushroom pictures and fungi art photographs) are of wild mushrooms from the Santa Cruz mountains in Northern California. …

Mushroom Art for Sale by Artist C Ribet

If you crack open any decent mycology or fungus field guide, you will find many wild mushroom pictures and many drawings, prints, and photographs of all kinds of fungi, and their fungi kingdom habitat. Many of these are beautiful prints or wild mushroom photos, and all of them should at a minimum give you a better understanding of the fungi they depict. These mushroom photos fulfill their purpose and often provide more, but do they bring forth an emotional response in you? …
