A jar full of seashells, a scanner - what more could a photographer ask for?  The soothing task of sorting through shells took me back to childhood, looking for intriguing patterns and details that would be well suited to scanography.  Here are two that I especially like - the shallow depth of field and dramatic falloff from light to dark are two of the qualities that give scanner art its emotional impact.
