  • Sometimes, it's the tiniest things that leave the biggest impression on our heart.💕This itty bitty shell was given to me today by a kind woman named Linda, who I met while I was taking photos on the beach. Linda + her son were cleaning the beach: carefully picking up pieces of sharp broken glass. It's a routine for them, it seemed, and Linda was so positive: instead of complaining about all the litter + human trash, she spoke about all the amazing, unusual, and beautiful things you can find "right under your feet, IF you pay attention." At that moment she stopped, picked up this perfect tiny shell, + placed it in my palm: "This one's for you."✨
