The scallop shell is a well recognized symbol for the Camino de Santiago, a walking trail in Spain...

Our town in South Germany lies on the Camino de Santiago. This figure cast in metal shows the pilgrim with his typical accessories: rainproof cape, staff with drinking bag (bota) and a bag for the necessary items. On his hat and on the cape in front of his heart is the identifying mark of these pilgrims: the St. James' shell.

There are a few wild nut trees at home. These nuts have an extremely hard shell, and I need to use my bench vice to crack them open. Squirrels are also found of these as I see often them carrying one. They obviously also know how to open them, as I find neat half shells on the ground. Really I have no clue how such a small animal is able to split these shells neatly like that!

A fossilized shell, it has the approximate volume of a baseball.

No marbles left ... too far on the wrong side of forty for that.
Just this luck stone I got to keep me reminded of what is needed most behind the camera: patience.

Here's a late entry for Shells, the classic version of the logo as @Santa mentioned:

GEMA corresponds to ASCAP. This piggy is feeded in our local Folk Club. Although there is no artist on stage whose rights would have to be respected and none of us four musicians gets any money, GEMA charges us some 40 $ for the night.
It's a sing-along event in the Pete Seeger tradition that takes place once a month with 80 to 100 persons singing along. We run it on a honorary (unsalaried) basis under the patronage of the Volkshochschule (Adult Education Center). So this money box represents the way we look at people charging money unjustly (we call it GEMA-piggy). There is no person taking profit from this event.

One day late. I did find my marbles, Very few Have!
Object of game is to jump marbles until you have one marble left in center hole. Pretty hard.
