Oyster graveyard

Post by Matt Quinn » Fri Aug 03, 2018 11:48 am

When the oysterman checks the beds, he chucks out those that have not grown or have been attacked by predators. A graveyard has grown with these rejects as well as from the two abandoned sites. Matt

I don't know, maybe it's because I'm a New Englander but I think oyster shell are beautiful.

All these images seem to make a comment of their own. The first two being the strongest.

An enterprising person armed with a hot glue gun and some googly eyes could have a lot of fun there. :lol:

Thanks Duck. I am going to play with the third image in b*&w for an abstract. Wish me luck. Matt

I like them very much. They are also very sad. (N)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Another part in an interesting series.

You've said you make printed books, which I think are great. I used to do more than I do now and should get back in the habit. Do you do little mini-books like on this subject? Other subjects?

I can think of several worthy subcollections that you have created recently. Riches to harvest!

Thanks for the suggestion, Minnie. So far, I have only done either b&w books, or family, or a summary of a year. But this might be a good project. Matt
