Found objects

Often I’ll photograph shells or other objects I find lying on the beach, just as they are.  I resist doing any artistic arranging for those shots; it seems inauthentic somehow.  (Like anyone would know… or care?)  The odds are I wouldn’t be able to come up with an artful arrangement that was more interesting than whatever I stumble upon anyway.  Perhaps this is related to my inability to draw.

When I’m not on the beach and I’m really itching for a subject, I can’t be too picky.  The rock and sand dollar arrangement were sitting on the railing on our back deck.  In my own defense: I didn’t put them there.
