I’ve been posting the photos of our annual kelp shed here at out beach, but I wanted to share a couple of things with you. First, there are several kinds of seaweeds that appear on our beach this time of year. The big brown kelp that is gorgeous and the smaller frilly dark maroon seaweeds. And finally the dark green sea grass type that get caught between your toes when you swim or wade.
This is also the time of year that I liked to photograph my friend’s silver jewelry line, called Silver by the Sea, because I used the seaweed as a textural background and this was a glorious time for all the different types. I would collect my bucket of seaweeds, then set up my TV tray, put down the plastic sheet to hold the aquarium gravel and shoot away in my patio.
