Seashells - tossed by waves,
bleached by the sun, and they hold
an ocean within.

A little haiku I wrote for fun to go with my seashell collection. I collected these shells from various tropical beaches, over a few years whenever i get to take a holiday by the sea. Some are smooth and white, some are spiny and delicately striped. Some are tiny and pink, and they all look perfectly made in their own way.

I made these high key photographs of them on white background with a sprinkling of sand to make the still life more natural looking. Also i took some pictures in diffused light for a softer mood, while some i took in sunlight so that the shadows show up the sculptural shapes of the shells.

I hope you like my seashell collection too ~ :)

Sea shells always fascinate - my husband has a huge collection and I had documented a few. But I will go back to photograph them after this wonderful blog of yours!
