Where was this photo taken?

Taken in my backyard in Fremantle Western Australia

Weather and time of day?

Late afternoon in March. 38C (100F) degrees, very still and hot, and the light is beautiful.

What were your feelings or impressions when taking this photo?

Hi - for the last two years I've been collecting shells from a little beach 5 mins down the road and only recently started collecting all this amazing beach glass from the same beach.

A couple weeks ago I Googled beach glass on a whim....


I never realised there's a whole lot of other people out there that think it's amazing too.

So for the first time I have laid out my mistreated collection and as I was taking the photo I thought it really is very pretty and I should take more care  

Hope you like it too!

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

I was just in Freemantle ( I'm from Canada ), I wish I had known about your little beach so I could go "hunting".

What a gorgeous collection and the pieces are so big with so many fabulous jealous!

Your photo is so beautiful. Your words, "mistreated connection" resonates with me. Lol.

What I wanted to say was... I see no whites! Something that is so very common over here on the central California coast. And something my son refers to as "leverites". (That's the rockhound in me coming through him about glass...)

Ahhhh, that's nothin' but an ole piece of leverite. Just leave 'er right there.

My vote.
