Just like I found it. Seems like it was in the water awhile.
Submitted for Self Portrait at Human Conditions.
(description for an old contest)***"When I read that the art had to represent myself, I knew exactly which one I was going to choose. This photo is of a flawed, broken shell. Upon closer look, you will see how in it's position on the beach, as the water flowed around it, it actually reshaped the sand around it. And this photo looks better if you look closer at it, make it bigger. All the little details become visible and wonderful even the oceans air bubbles in the sand. I see myself this exact same way, broken and flawed and yet still interesting. I shape the enviornment around me, if I like it or not. And unless you look close, you won't get to know all the little details that make me me."
