In Photography

On this quiet Thursday, I decided to spend time in my studio photographing a few bivalves from my husband’s extensive shell collection.  Why not?

Here are my favorite shots of the day – I had my husband write down their names because shells are his thing.  Enjoy!

 

This is a Concholepas concholepas (this one is a univalve).  See the lines ringing it, like tree rings?  Each represents a year of growth for the organism that made this shell.  Pretty cool!

This one is called Hippopus hippopus, the bear-paw clam.

I love this one because it looks like a heart ❤️

This mean looking one is Spondylus americanus, a spiny oyster.
