Scallop Shells, by Elizabeth Brown

Beachcombers have long sought out scallop shells as they can add such vivid color to a shell collection. Regarded for their beauty for thousands of years, the Roman goddess Venus (also known as the Greek goddess Aphrodite) was born from a scallop shell according to ancient mythology. The beautiful colors and symmetry of the shells has made them popular subjects for artists for centuries. As an avid collector of shells, the warm hues of this group of scallop shells caught my attention.

Elizabeth Brown is a fine art photographer who enjoys capturing a variety of subjects. Her interests include landscapes, architecture, plants and all things associated with the coast. Elizabeth’s fine art photography is in several private collections and her commercial photography can be seen in several multi-family industry publications throughout the US.
Elizabeth has been fascinated by photography for more than 20 years. “My interest in photography started at 12 after experimenting with my father’s SLR camera. Only a few months later I bought my first SLR camera that I still have today. I had no idea then that I had discovered my life-long passion.”
“Some of my very first photos were of the coast and it is still a favorite subject for my photography today. I find nothing more serene than a salty breeze off the coast with the sound of the surf in the distance and use photography to capture those fleeting moments to savor.”
After growing up in Virginia Beach and living in many cities throughout the southeast, Elizabeth now resides on the Gulf Coast of Florida and enjoys spectacular sunsets with her family regularly.
