I love natural things especially ones with textural appeal. I found this shell on an evening walk and loved the soft, subtle colours and tones. It speaks of the ocean from where it came and also has a sensual/ sexual appeal that speaks of the beauty of the female body. It is so smooth which reminds me of skin and the ridges remind me of a skirt. The lilac and pink and the shape of the shell are so powerfully feminine. The colours dry out when the water is not touching it, so once photographed it looks completely different. Just another beautiful moment that once appreciated is already gone.
