Shells



The photo I am playing with today for Mandarin Orange Monday is of some shells on my bathroom window sill.  I have collected shells all my life.  I love their translucent colours and markings. One of my favourite things to do is to pick them up and listen to the sea roar.  Which is great as I live inland, a hours drive.
the original photo
a romantic look
cool blues for a bathroom!
cropped and concentrating on lines
reminds me  of Australian aboriginal art!


Here I wanted that look of the shells in water, perhaps a fish tank?

Have a happy Mandarin Orange Day and a great week creating wonderful art.

  6. Your photo editing reminds me of my friend Cazjane on Flickr. She has always had a way of transforming the mundane into something interesting. I like what you did with the still life of shells.
