There are many remote, peaceful areas along the Delaware shore where one can beachcomb on beaches that rarely see another human visitor. On these beaches can be found simple, elegant and beautiful things to find in the tide line such as this ribbed mussel shell. In its weathered, symmetrical still-hinged form I see simple, natural beauty. There is a slight depression to the left of and below the shell where wave water that deposited the shell washed back to the bay. This very small shell in a large patch of sand with nothing else around it caught my eye. The texture, color and hint of the force that put it there was what brought me to photographing it to share. Sometimes it really is the little things in life.
