    that third one from the bottom..what is that?It reminds me of placenta and childbirth….and I think I can see a reflection (maybe?) of the photographer or her assistant?or am I seeing things?

      yes! somehow that one makes me think all sorts of red tent thoughts… i didn't even notice my reflection! (my assistant was not with me on this day.) it's a sea anemone, closed up to keep from drying out at low tide, but i had never seen one with such brilliant colors before. between the colors and the afternoon sun low in the sky, it made for some crazy good photo ops.

  • Beautiful photos and I have loved that poem since I was a child. It's so perfect.

      thank you so much for knowing the poem! i knew someone would. 😀 (for anyone who didn't, and since i should give credit for the quote, it's e.e. cummings' maggie and milly and molly and may. "for whatever we lose, like a you or a me, it's always ourselves we find in the sea."

    oh, that poem sent shivers down my spine…fellow ocean loving girl here 🙂

    hello! it's been so long since i visited, i have been going slow and going to bed early, and doing things away from the screen.

    but i want to catch up with blogs and people i value here, so here i am, soaking up the wonderful photographs and stunning images you've captured!

    did you get a new camera?

  • this erin, from a wild and precious life… (now i added my blog address, doh!)

    i think you're my only "erin" so i knew who you were! 🙂 it's good to hear from you- i think it's great you are taking the time you need and getting extra sleep. and also happy you have stopped by to catch up. i did not get a new camera- most of my photos are taken on my crappy phone one on a daily basis, but the old canon (with film) is what i use for special mama-wants-to-really-shoot-something-nice occasions. like tidepooling by herself one afternoon. 🙂
