still life with clamshell

be still 52 week 1

yesterday i started a new course with Kim Klassen. fifty two weeks of creating, shooting and sharing still life photographs.
i have decided to use the stuff i find daily, when i am out with the dogs in the polder behind my house, and then combine it with some of the numerous objects and fabrics i have collected over the years.
today's find is an opened clamshell.

i placed it on some light grey gauze, embroidered with silvery spiderwebs. then i poured some water inside the hollow shells to bring out the pearly shine a bit more. the glittering, drop-like knots in the embroidery create a connection between the water clinging to the shell and the fabric.
