Photographer's Note

Sometimes stopping and looking at the commonplace is a worthwhile occupation.

BEACH PEBBLES A poem by ROBERT RISCH

Barefoot or in boat shoes
I致e stepped on them before
Not thinking where they came from
Just pebbles by the shore.

Spotted and lined and circled
Smooth, rough or red and blue
I saw them only as beach cover
Or an irritant in my shoe.

Until my young sons gave me one
On a sunny day by the sea,
And I looked at it more carefully
And it seemed quite different to me.

How long did it take to get there?
Where was its place of birth?
From the top of some old mountain
Or the fiery belly of the earth?

So now when I go to the beach
I look through different eyes.
Pebbles aren稚 just for walking on
They are really gems in disguise.
