Lost- and FOUND!

This week I was going through my antique dental cabinet and discovered some seashells that I hadn’t seen since the move to Arizona.  I had always kept my father’s shells from his tour in the Pacific in World War II in the cabinet, but didn’t realize that MY small collection had been put in there too.  I KNEW they would turn up somewhere!  I have photographed the little green one before, but felt compelled to shoot it again, because, well,  I was just so happy to see it again! So the shells are this week’s Friday Find.

And, of course, here is a black and white version.

  3. Beautiful set of images! I can’t decide which I like best…your black and white conversions are perfect. I like the texture layers in the first four, but think the aperture in the fourth makes it my favorite. Enjoy the day!
