Beauty in Unexpected Places


  1. Ooooh! Pretty! I do love tiny seashells.

    That rock looks volcanic!

  2. How many of those shells had been pounded on the rocks by waves that never knew their own strength?

  3. Ah Jay, how observant of you - I took this pic on that walk around the Mount a couple of weeks ago.

    Yes Jinksy - Ain't life marvelous? - mollusc makes a shell, mollusc dies, shell is slowly pounded to bits, makes sand for a while, returns to its calcium constituents, is absorbed by a mollusc (or fish, or water mammal, or marine vertebrate or hard coral or ...or... ) and then excreted again as shell or bone or home...

  4. I'd put a bunch of these into a pretty glass jar.

  5. Welcome to TLVD Izabella! I have sooo many seashells - I have to rotate them.
    I like your images of painting placements. My favourite one is the cosy divan corner with all the books around the window. I'm rather booky as well as painty;o)
