Photography Project: The Weston Beach Take 2

Kelp arrangement

Last week, I blogged about being on the same beach as Edward Weston, and seeing the same things he did.  It was an amazing and special experience.  I started exploring abstracts, and then quickly got diverted by the interesting “sea food” that had washed up on the beach.

Usually I don’t find kelp and other ocean detritus especially exciting, but this beach was surprisingly unique.  The colors, shapes, textures, patterns were different and vibrant.  I spent time looking for “arrangements”, similar to flower arrangements or how you would create a scene for a painting.  I was fortunate, it was an overcast day, and the tide was in.  The water helped to saturate the colors of the pebbles and the kelp.  I could have spent hours there, but it was time to search for another grand landscape on the California coast.
