Default Things Fall Apart: I'm stumped

In the yard behind my apartment building is a small, low, wooden deck. There was once a tree growing through the deck (before my time), but all that's left of it is a stump, cut off level with the deck.

I like the way the mushrooms are taking over. It's kind of hard to tell that it was a tree stump. Perhaps a lower angle would work.

I agree with Mugmar the impact might have been increased with a lower angle. Nonetheless it does reveal the vestiges of a dying stump pretty good.

The stump looks like a large mushroom going back into the ground.

Thanks for the comments, gentlemen. Calicajun - heh heh - I think I'd need a bigger saute pan!

I've seen many stumps that look similar to that and it never occurred to me to photograph them.

Great shot.
