The original assignment: I was asked to go to Hunting Island State Park and walk the beach until I found pieces of foundation from the old beach houses that used to be on the island. In all, I walked about 4 miles.

The outtake: As I walked, I came across a number of interesting things. One of them was this horseshoe crab shell lying in a patch of sand. I took a photo of the shell with my iPhone and manipulated the picture with a filter, which altered the contrast and coloring of the photograph slightly.
