Creature of the sea I by chrusel Creature of the sea I by chrusel
A while ago i spent two wonderful weeks of holidays on the beautiful island of Mauritius with my girlfriend. One day we went down to the beach to gather some peaces of dead coral, shells and suddenly i came across this weard thing. It used to be a sea-hedgehog and got washed ashore. There are many of these black volcanic stones along the beaches of this island that are wonderful to take pictures of. I placed the sea-hedgehog's skeleton on one of them and "click", that's the result of it.
Hope you like it.
Please watch it in full view for the details.

I looks like it's being taken over! Sea-hedgehog you say? That is fantastically bizarre.

Nice to see one that's still got some spikes on :) I think the background's a little too dark though-could just be my eyes (and probably is!) but those spikes are a teeny bit hard to make out. Still, lovely shell :)

i think it doesn't matter on what sort of computer you are working.
it's all about adjusting your screen the way it should be.
i can see the spikes very well.

Wow, that is amazing. It reminds me of the very popular piece in the deviantART shop of the person decaying into butterflies. A very good representation of how life is ever changing. At least that's what I got out of it.

The part that reminded of your picture that reminded me of that deviation was the transition from old spines to skeleton. The grainy black trickle-down thing effect instantly reminded me of the seamless and transfixing appearance of the transition between human and butterflies in that deviation. Perhaps now you see a resemblance?

I'm not sure it's a matter of depth of thought, it may just be hyper-analyzation combined with a fairly large and often-called-upon vocabulary. But thank you very much! I try. :D

i could not resist to take that thing home. you're right, normally you can't find them with some spikes left.
thanks for the comment.
