Beach Stones (Almost Wordless Wednesday)

The 2012 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt is almost over!  On Friday, September 21, I will publish a post asking all participants to comment and let me know how many of the items you found during the summer.  Participants will have until Sunday night, September 23 to check-in. I will be giving out two prizes: one chosen from among those who found all 21 of the items and one chosen from among all participants. The prizes will be photography-related and randomly chosen. See you on Friday!
The other day I went for a walk on the beach looking for sea glass. I didn't find much of that, but I did collect a whole bowl full of beach stones.  I took them home and created some still lifes. 
The first one is organic:
The second one is more arranged:
And, for the third one, I let my muse take over:
Got a favorite in today's offering?

What lovely creative photos. Love the last one, the yellow and grey are such a gorgeous combination.

Mary B said...

Definitely the third one, it brought a smile to my morning face and lightened my morning grumpiness. Thank you Rinda

Amy said...

Oh decisions, decisions! I like the form and shape of the third but the colour and hue of the organic arrangement. :-)

Becky said...

Lovely photos, but the third is my favourite :)

Miriam said...

I like the ghost in the second picture and in the third picture top row in the middle the smooth circular shape, because I could turn it in my hand when I'm thinking.
I have lots of stones like this but never thought of photographing them, I also have a lot of sea washed glass. Rinda, you are such an inspiration to me. Guess what I'll be looking at through my lens today?

Love the variety of colours....and the third is my favourite.

loving that pop of yellow. I didn't get any of my beach stones or shells out this summer - was thinking this the last time you did a beach set of photos. Do love finding interestingly weathered stones and beach glass so pretty.

I think the collection in the bowl is the one which makes me want to reach out and feel their smoothness in my own hand

Cheri said...

Definitely the balance one - made me smile when I saw it! Thanks.

Anne said...

Definitely the last one. Gorgeous !

Irene said...

The last one is my favorite. Very whimsical.

Gloria said...

I love your muse. You must live close to the beach, that's nice. I actually like them all Rinda. Have a great rest of the week.

Karen said...

Love the cairn--the contrast of colors really sets it off.

alexa said...

My favourite is the very last one, Rinda - and I am so delighted to see that you are still making lovely collections.

Another vote for the stack in the last photo - I really like the other shots, but I *love* that last one! :)

Jimjams said...

I love the bowlful best!

Melissa said...

Definitely the third one - anything with a splash of yellow will almost always be my favorite! :>)
