ohh, I actually find that first shell quite creepy!Mich x
Thanks Mich. Yes, it's very strange isn't it. Found it on the beach like that, I'd never seen inside a shell before, found it strangely fascinating! x
Shells are so interesting. There's something about the texture ofthe inside that gives me the heebie-jeebies. We're off on holiday to the coast at the end of the week, maybe my Silent Sunday will be something similar next week!
I was just going to post the same - heebie-jeebies sums it up perfectly! Funny how such an innocent object can give you the shivers!
Hi. I'm posting my Silent Sunday as well, I only just saw that it's not on today! It's a shame someone else couldn't have hosted it for dayI love this, a great idea. It makes me happy as well, as it's reminded me that in June we're taking the twins for their frist holiday: in Cormwall, & I'm really looking forward to exploring beach rock pools with them :)
Love the way its sliced in half! Fab to see inside x
Ooh lovely inside out photo :-)
What a find! x
I really like this. Is it the same shell turned over or are they different?
Thanks for all your comments.Jacq they are 2 different shells, but almost identical - except one was broken comppletely in half of course! I'd never seen one bisected before, I though it was really interesting to see how the creatures can retreat back inside and hide from predators.Funny how lots of you are finding it creepy :0)
Clever the two shell halves It looks a bit alien like doesn't it?
I love it, but then I love most beachy items at the moment
I love it when things reveal their secrets within
Thats an amazing find, I have never seen the inside of a shell before! Wow xx
Fab photo lovely! We love shells and have a ridiulously sized collection including some like this but none of them are that slightly spooky colour!
Great photo. What a find!
I love collecting shells. Fab pic but I agree with some of the other commentors that the first one is oddly creepy!
My Daughter would love that!.. it must be rare to see them like that. xx
