Deep Purple

This pebble is truly a deep, charcoal-purple hue. It sat alone on a heavily pebbled tide line, as if to say, “Notice me!”  I took this little stone home, because it is so unusual.

I find this photo particularly peaceful; the color of the stone, the five grains of sand on its surface, and the miniature reflection of the sun in the droplet all pull me in and serve as a reminder to relax. Enjoy.


Quiet in the Morning


This is a photograph that I find very meditative, so peaceful.
When I walk the tide line, my mood can dictate the types of still lifes that I notice. Conversely, certain arrangements can be a catalyst for particular moods.
This small clam with the pebble and sand grains in its bowl was just beyond the reach of a receding tide line, and it was gone just a few washes later. In those few moments on the tide line, this arrangement offered me a lovely respite from morning’s jumbled thoughts.
It still does today.
