Seashells washed up by the storm in Cannes two weeks ago. I wish I could capture those soft colours to paint my house with..

"Sur la plage abandonnée
Coquillage et crustacés
Qui l'eût cru déplorent la perte de l'été
Qui depuis s'en est allé
On a rangé les vacances
Dans des valises en carton
Et c'est triste quand on pense à la saison
Du soleil et des chansons"

Le jeux des enfants, ramasser des tonnes de coquillages et en faire de superbes statues (ou colliers) pour la fête des mères ;o)

Lovely idea.

Really Angela. We humans try our best, but have never succeeded in matching or even coming closer to the beauties created by the nature :)

Well a tongue-twister here. I don't know whether you know. Try speaking "She sells sea shells on the sea shore" repeatedly. Sorry if this is already a common tongue-twister there :)

It would be so peaceful.
I have a friend who collects little pebbles and classify them by colors in glass jars. They are an element of decoration very nice.

I often photograph shells that are gathering virtual dust on the laptop. Reminds me they are make pretty natural images.

Oh I love them. I remeber, in my childhood, I used to collect a lot and a lot. Nice capture :)

Interesting that I recognize most as shells we find on our gulf coast in southern Alabama and Florida! Makes we long for the beach right now!!
