Who among us can deny that sand dollars have a kind of magical mystical double life? Perhaps through transference, these creatures (albeit in death) carry with them, a form of hope, a sheer sense of wonder and luck upon finding one washed up on shore, whole and complete. I simply can not deny how excited I felt when I found this sand dollar on the Oregon coast. But I still wonder - why? This series of photographs seeks to depict in detail a simple admiration of natural form of this Western Sand Dollar.
