Ultimately, I finished this photograph in the position that I photographed the original still life, but I toyed with other rotations of the photo. From the left, it was too much a ‘bowl’ and too predictable. From the right, well, it was far too evocative of a certain fast food logo for me!
Regardless of its orientation, I find myself wondering about what appears to be a cross section of the carapace. Many times I am curious about the origin of the items in the still lifes, and this is one of them.
