When I posted Beach pebbles, I thought “Aha, that's done. I've finished with pebbles as a subject.” How wrong I was! In fact, I'd merely attuned my eyes to pebbles and I'm photographing them more than ever. The day I walked without my camera, I gathered about twenty beauties in a plastic bag and took them home. The next day, I carried them back to the beach, doused them in sea-water to restore their colours and placed them one by one on the sand to photograph them. The ocean mocked me, running up my back as I knelt in pebble-adoration. However, I remain a pebble tragic.
