States of Erosion Image 8 Whelk Shell Nature Photography
This project was created to showcase the details & color variations of a variety of Whelk shells found in Hatteras, North Carolina. These shells where found logged in the grooves of a large steel jetty near the site of the old Cape Hatteras Lighthouse; they were there for an unknown amount of years and each is in its own state of erosion. The project was designed to highlight the smooth edges that formed on the shells from the years of tumbling on the ocean floor or the water rushing over them once they were logged in the jetty. The shells were all photographed on a solid black background to eliminate any distractions & to keep the focus strictly on the curves, colors, & damage of the shells.

Here are some tips for incorporating it into your home, if you haven’t done so already.
This beautiful abstract piece gives this living room a fresh perspective. It contrasts the traditional elements for a perfect transitional blend. Notice that all the pattern is provided by the art, while the palette is repeated in the textiles.
Abstract art has a great ability to set a mood. For that reason, it is a perfect backdrop for contemplative spaces like bedrooms and sitting rooms.
