Not sure what’s the star of this photo, the squiggle shell fragment or the sand grains. They complement one another, yes?
… and it is only a moment, when the damp of the receding tide and the perfect angle of the sun seem to suspend grains of sand like tiny gems. No, this is technically not a still life, but to me it is a moment of magic.
I admit the photo is a little evocative of a certain set of mouse ears….
