@Cedric, @Uwe, @Jeff: I am glad you enjoyed the image. The magic in the title was meant twofold, a bit tongue-in-cheek probably: Besides that magic through the soft rendering the subject matter reminded me of Castaneda's psychedelic helpers - yes, I am that old. Therefore the title.

While your photo is appealing, those mushrooms look to be from the Amanita family, usually poisonous and not magic at all.

Das sehe ich genauso wie Cedric. Da muss man nicht viel sagen, nur sich „verzaubern“ lassen. Gruß Uwe

This has a really charming, fairy-tale like quality about it. Magic indeed.

Exakt der, bzw. sein Nachbau. Sein Standfotograf bzw. dessen Tochter hatte lang ein Foto- und Ansichtskartengeschäft in unserer Stadt.

Wahrscheinlich haben sich die Werbetreibenden an Kohelets Wort "Es gibt nichts neues unter der Sonne" orientiert und deswegen jedes Schamgefühl ob ihrer Einfallslosigkeit weit von sich gewiesen :(

Thanks, Tyler. I think Martina ( coined the term 'Weese weeds' years ago, at a time when I was still learning to see beauty in everyday subjects. So it did stick, and in the meantim I stopped to dream of ideal subjects and started to enjoy what was near.

I like the combination of the delicate grass and the cracks in the plaster, in a soft afternoon light, neither dull nor harsh. I was lucky, having found this on an errand, and only minutes from home so I could return with the camera.

Ich muss mal suchen - hier stand das sogenannte "Schweizerhaus", in den letzten Jahren eher ein Fremdkörper in traditionellem Baustil mit großem Dachüberstand, daneben auf einer Seite ein Parkplatz und ein ehemalig feines Hotel, auf der anderen Seite ein 4-stöckiger Plattenbau. Aber davor: eine riesige Magnolie!

I do quite like that, and aside from the general subject matter, it is not at all like Carl Weese's work. No offense, Carl. Tyler
Carl Weese said at 2020-08-28 17:11:06:
It's a pretty interesting wall, too.

Robert, in reality it's not as quiet as it looks - 2m behind my back, an endless row of bikers and pedestrians were passing, going to and back a public bath. But this is the beauty of photography: you learn to hold still, see and enjoy.

The original file in color was quite bland, but cropping and adding darkness helped create the mood.
