Just eight months ago we were walking on Varca Beach in South Goa, India. This starfish caught our eye. We didn’t know whether something else (an ocean wave, person, or animal) had flipped it over — there are bird tracks in the sand — or if it had made a very unfortunate move by itself. In any event, we were struck by the composition in the bright afternoon sunlight.
