The tide was out very far today, as I went beach combing in the misty rain. There were rocks that are rarely above the water line, glistening black underneath their mantle of blackish green vegetation. And like an old dowager dressed in her finest, there were some shining pearls dotted amongst the rocks. Half shells that remained embedded, presenting their beautiful white interiors. I was taken by the sharp contrast between glistening white and glistening black.
