I had some left over varnish and it had been a lot of years since I fooled around with shells so I dolloped
them up with some acid and painted 'em pretty. I had forgotten how neat they looked. Trouble was, they're
hard to photograph when you get 'em all glossed up like a cheap floozy. It's that dewey eyed look they have
in the light... any light. What the heck. What the camera gives 'em, Photoshop can take away.
By the way, I put up a couple pages on my site that aren't directly diving related, so I figure I won't post them,
but here are the links for anyone interested. I think they're pretty nice.
Enjoy the diving, seahunt

    Haliotis rufescens. I cleaned up about a dozen shells and am giving them for gifts this year.
    I gave one 9 1/2 incher to my nephew that just moved to Tokyo. I figure it is good Mojo there.


    The same shell without the glare.
