found

 beauty in the breakdown

This weekend I photographed a series of shells I found at the beach last summer and fall. 
I find that over the winter I am constantly thinking about the shore and dreaming of lounging in the sun and sand and jumping waves. I think I could live at the beach. 
I miss the smell of salt water and suntan lotion. 
These help. 
I think I may offer a few as prints someday. They would look nice hanging as a group.
You can see all of them on the flickr set -  found

I LOVE the beach too. Shells are a marvelous subject to photograph. You did an AMAZING job. They would make excellent prints. I can see them as a grouping on a wall. The green one is my favorite. take care.
