Because we got married on a beach, and honeymooned on a beach, I wanted some sand from each spot as a keepsake. We have a nice glass "vase" in our bedroom that holds the sand. The bottom layer is from Guilford, Connecticut which is on Long Island Sound. The middle layer is from the sandy cove area of our hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii, and the top layer is from a black sand beach (black because it's made from volcanic rock) also on the big island of Hawaii. I think it's interesting to see not only the color difference, but the particle size. The Connecticut sample has lot of large rock&shell particles in it. The white sand has some but is fairly smooth. The black sand is almost straight fine sand with no rock or shell.

I had a hard time thinking of what would classify as "angle". I'm submitting this one because it's taken AT an angle, looking straight up the silo's, and also just at the right angle to get the sun inbetween them.

Took this today - everything is blooming like crazy so I cut some lilacs to bring inside, and wanted to get some photos that included our big white flowering tree. Yey spring!

Some sapphire and diamond jewelry from the Natural History Museum. They had a huge gemstone section - mostly natural stones - but there was a side room of crazy gemstone jewelry owned by royalty and private collectors.

Sorry for the pic spam everyone - I am going on vacation until Sunday and couldn't figure out how to post entries now and not have them show up until a specified date...so I figured I would just post all my photos now and cover my days until I get back. Hope that is ok!
