Treasures in the sand

You never know what you will find when you walk along the beach. Sometimes all you see is sand and maybe some kelp that has washed ashore. Then there are those rare times when you find something special - something unique. I like to call these findings treasures in the sand.

To some this is just a small shell and some pieces of colored glass. To me it is much more. This was once a home to a small ocean creature - a sea urchin - and the glass has been washed in the tide so many times that it is now smooth. The contrast of colors and textures speaks to me. The shell tells a story - the story became a photograph - and this photograph is now my treasure.
