A Simple Image

Little stones abound

One of the nice things about photography is that it affords us a different way of looking at the world around us.  Sometimes the very simple and overlooked can create a rather nice composition.


Walking on a beach with lots of pebbles, I purposely looked for a pattern in the pebble formation that allowed me to compose something that might catch the eye.  Critical factors in my mind were the angle of the light and any natural lines that might occur in the pattern; additionally, as lighter pebbles will draw the eye, I paid attention to their position.

This was the result, some 6 years ago.  I hope you enjoy it.
