September '22 Monthly Challenge #4: Artistic Photo - Sand


I hope I'm not stretching the concept of "artistic photo" too far, but I've always been intrigued by the patterns waves make in sand as the tide goes in and out and how they look like like works of art. This page is made of seven sand photos plus one for the title where you can also see the sky, sand and water.  I then took an ocean photo, duplicated it 12 times to get blue on the entire page and used it for the blue background strip!
Journaling reads:
"Indeed, every beach is essentially a product of its regional and local environment and is accordingly one-of-a-kind. The sand on each beach is like a fingerprint, unique to the particular beach where you find it. The sand's unique composition, color and grain size are a result of the source rocks it came from, but also a result of coastal processes that modify the sand over long periods of time. Examples of these processes include the types of waves and currents in an area, as well as the sea level history for that particular coast."

I take photos of the sand too...the ocean makes beautiful paintings when the tide goes out. This is a work of art! Beautiful and such a creative idea. I love it.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one to take photos of patterns in the sand. :) These are wonderful and I love how you've shown all their different "moods." Your journaling is fascinating, too. I love how the blue accents the sand colors as well. Gorgeous page!

Wowie, wow wow! This is … incredibly amazing! In the pattern on the lower left side i see the back of a woman’s head and upper back and to me it looks like she’s hugging herself, I can see her fingers and maybe even her glasses. Your blending is superb, effortless. Love it!
