Sea Glass

Posted: April 17, 2018 in Uncategorized
One of the participants in my Florida macro boot camp this weekend brought me some, Sea Glass. Pieces of broken glass, once sharp at the edges, that have been ground smooth from the back and forth movement over the sand under the water. It’s great when I get some new unique subjects to shoot.

I’ll be presenting at the Lakewood Ranch Digital Camera Club on Wednesday April 18th. Meeting times are 6:30 to 8:30 Location, Grace Community Church
6932 Professional Pkwy E., Sarasota, FL 34240
