When I was a child we lived in Hawaii. I collected shells on the beach. The fascination with shells never ended. I still collect them today.

A nice collection Elaine.... seashells are such fun to collect! I collect stones, rocks/pebbles here... they're in dishes all around the house! I like the b/w but I bet these look pretty in color too! A lovely composition!

@Carol: Unfortunately I have my shells in a box. I need to somehow display them. It was raining yesterday so I took them out to look at them.
