Wall Fluff

Exactly that: Wall fluff!
On one of my walks my eye caught something ‘strange’ on a wall of a building I pass by every day. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t there before. At least not that fluffy and cottony!
I suppose it’s some kind of fungus but hey little fluffs, you work fast and I can’t resist taking pictures of you!
I do hope they’ll forgive my intrusion and artistic modifications!
Aren’t they gorgeous?
Please say ‘yes’, I wouldn’t want them to hold a grudge and turn green on me!
Say cheese, little fluffies!
Oh, look how fluffy you are!
Melon tinted fluffies…
And one more…
Sad to leave you but I know you have work to do!

A lovely -rest of- Thursday everyone!

  1. OMG! The fluff looks like Johnny’s fur. (Get out the lint roller!)
    Seriously beautiful shots, Marina.
    Definitely a fluffy part of Earth Nerve Net, I think. Ask Hera what she thinks!

      You think Johnny visited Athens without you knowing?!!!!!!
      Thank you, my sweet friend. I just fell in love with that fluff! I was lucky too because the owners saw it a day after I photographed it and scraped it off. I was kind of sad seeing it… poor fluff…
      Hera loves all nature, so I know she’d love this. I can imagine her with a bit of fluff on her nose! 😉

  2. This stuff is known as an efflorescence. It consists of minerals (like gypsum, for example). Moisture in the walls dissolves the minerals and they recrystallize on the surface when the water evaporates. The basic problem is that the wall is somehow getting wet. Maybe there is a broken tube somewhere or rain is entering. In any case, they look beautiful.

  3. Reminds me of a trip we took with another couple to California many years ago. At one winery, the guide took us into a wine cave/ Interestingly, the walls were covered with fur . actually mold. A sight I will never forget.
