Hey! Who ate the pistachios? Now we know that you like brown eggs, escargot, and pistachios...

As with the pistachios before, nice shot.

Thank you for the kind and gentle remarks - it gives an beginner much confidence. Oddly enough I was not all that happy with the composition - something I have to learn a lot more about. Think I may repeat the shot with less clutter i.e. less objects and no sand. Perhaps less IS more?

The snails were not the edible kind but some winter fatalities found in the garden and all grist for the photographic mill.

Interestingly I am finding that photography is influencing the way I look at everything - I keep looking for shapes, colour arrangements, patterns and the quality of light even when I haven't a camera to hand.

Actually you had a really good mix to give the shot enough variety to make it interesting.

You'd be surprised at how many garden variety snails end up on the snack tray.

It gets worse, and therapy doesn't help. Eventually you will be lead down the path from the darkness to the light (dSLR) and it just gets goes down hill from there...
