I love making these kinds of ephemeral images. Combinations of lines and textures that last only moments before the waves come and rearrange everything. In this case, this broken off part of brown kelp (the Pneumatocyst is an air bladder that helps the Kelp float) helps make these striking patterns as the waves have washed over the beach. This was one of the last images I made in 2020, a fitting end to a year of more abstract, intimate photography.
