The beach was littered with sand dollars on Sunday. Most of them were still in perfect condition, not yet broken by people walking past as they looked for treasures to take home. This one came home with me, but is now black instead of purple. And to be honest, it's not very pretty dressed in black so I may bleach it. The photo is fun because you can make so many adjustments to the photo and change the look entirely. Our beach sand has lots of sparkle and color when you look at it up close in a photo. It's not the stark white sand, or the very soft filtered sand that you see on some beaches. It has more texture as you can see here. It makes for more contrast in the photo that I've also enjoyed playing with. I imagine I will find several editing iterations to please my eye. And so, this is my photo of choice for Tuesday Muse at Nancy's blog.
