WPC: Detail


This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge by “The Daily Post is “Detail”.

I picked an image from my archive, showing the polished shell of a certain kind of sea-snail, the Haliotis, common name is abalone.

Below the ugly surface, you can find this wonderful subject.


Take care have a great weekend!

    1. I’m sorry, Maggie, I don’t know. We bought it polished. But, I guess, you have to use a dremel like tool to remove the outer layers. Next you have to polish the shell also with a dremel, but using a polish toot instead of a dental drill. Maybe a jewelry producer can help you. Here, you can buy many different gems based on fraction parts of the polished shell.

    1. I used a macro lens on my DSLR and a tripod. The tripod for not getting any blur from slightest movements of my camera during exposure and the macro lens from getting close enough.

What do you think?
