Where was this photo taken?

Glass from Cayman Islands, Caribbean

What were your feelings or impressions when taking this photo of sea glass?

I have been to the Cayman Islands twice (Captain said not to disclose exact location of treasure :)).

I found a lot of glass, including black glass which I found out is very old and quite rare.

I wanted the photo to remind me of the old black and white photos I used to take as a kid.  Placing the glass on a simple white paper towel gave me the look I wanted.

What kind of camera and/or lens did you use?

Used my cellphone for the photo. 

What tips do you have for taking good photos of sea glass?

I always think the best photos in life are the simplest and least expected.
