SG Theme: White on White
Shot outside on white posterboard.

When my Mother had the opportunity to travel, she loved to walk along the water and collect shells. Before she passed away she gave me her collection, this is just a few of them.

There is a timeless appeal about shells Carla which you've captured perfectly in this beautiful, beautiful image.
I can't resist picking up a shell or three (in the hope that one day I will have a lovely beachside home to display them in....LOL)
Will catch up with you when I get back from Sydney next month.
