When taking photographs, there is one thing that I do not do. That is, I do not pose photographs. What you see is what you get in my case. I move nothing. I change nothing. I find scenes and record them.

I may move around and view different items. I work my shots around the environment that I am in. I make my steps careful as I don't want to leave hardly a footprint where I am working.

Why such care? Because I could not compose the scenes any better than the tide, waves and wind. Imagine the circumstances and forces that came together to compose this unique scene. A tiny seed quahog shell perched upon the edge of a larger quahog shell along the water's edge. And then framing this among worn mussel shells. And it will only be available for a heartbeat of our lives.

I am in awe of the composer of this scene, and I am privileged to be able to record it.
