Things I've Been Seeing

From the Sea

Rincon is the name of a strip of land near Ventura, Ca. where campers set up their rigs at the edge of the beautiful Pacific ocean. We spent several days there last year and on one of my daily beach walks I came across these pieces of stone with the most astounding patterns. I love these photos and just for fun have manipulated a couple of them. My favorite though is the original image.

    Cool stone(s) on the beach, Shirley! I think it’s fun how you manipulated or looked at them via different colors. So you live on the Pacific Ocean? Lucky you!

    Hi, Centria. Well I’m not really into manipulation that much–just learning, but it was kind of fun. I definitely like the original best.

    I don’t actually live on the ocean, but my main home is in southern California about 60 miles from the ocean. Although we maintain our home in Crestline, CA, for two years now we have lived in Lake Havasu, AZ. Quite a switch from the beautiful mountains of Crestline and the shores of the Pacific. But it is beautiful here in its own way.

    Thank you for stopping by and for commenting.

  3. Wow that is one amazing stone, reminds me of those animal fossils.

    Thanks for sharing

    . Hi, Bird. You know I think it actually might be a fossil. Neat, huh. Thanks for being here.

  4. Sis. Buxton, almost as much as I love taking photos, I love writing what first comes to my mind when I look at one.

    Okay…you are probably gonna think this is weird – and probably not going to make a bit of sense to you or your readers.

    When I first look at this photo (the original), here’s what I think:

    It’s the inside of my chest – my heart. The little black stone is my “gold” (even though it’s black). Inside every person there is a gold nugget. We must look for the gold nugget in everyone. And…there’s mine. Ha! Am I silly or what? 🙂

    Of course, you’re not silly. There is value in every sincere person’s thought. Thank you for this.
