  3. Taken together, the colors on these rocks remind me of one of my first art projects: painting pieces of driveway gravel with watercolors, as a gift for my mother. Then again, the complementary stripes of color in the second could be a Navajo blanket, and the topaz and peridot in the first bring to mind those gemstones.

    The contrasting textures in the third photo are especially interesting: part honeycomb, part smooth wave.
