My World Tuesday - Found Objects.

I like found objects, simple things. Sticks. Stones. Large leaves. Shells. Most nature watching comes into the class of found objects as well. Chance encounters. Fleeting glimpses. I don't like it as much when the wildlife is on tap, around bird feeders, or begging for food.

Beaches are some of the best places I know for found objects. They change hour by hour and a morning walk, best just after high tide, always seems to bring something to light. Some living, some not. These are set of pictures I made of some of the shells we found during our week on Magnetic Island. I don't know what most of them are, but for me that's part of the charm of shells, they seem so fine and yet so unknowable. I hope you like them.

These are terrific, Stewart! I love walking on the beach just after the tide has gone out and I, too, have found some beautiful shells and rocks! But yours are really fantastic! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!
