Washed Up River Junk


An attempt to get back into the swing of things after work and winter brought things to a grinding halt in January. Winter weather is still with us, even though it's technically spring by the calendar, but I've got a week off from work to jump-start the engines. Walk along the river today at low tide. This is a piece of wood landscaped by what I believe are shipworms, which are apparently actually a type of clam.

Foam Hills

And this is a close-up of one of several pieces of black foam padding, it appears, that washed up or were discarded in place - hard to imagine why they would be clustered together in one place like that, but they were in various states of decay.


  1. Ha nice to have you back Micheal and with two strong photo's in a style I can describe now as your speciality. Hope to see more in the direct future and that you are doing well.

  2. Thanks s.c.! Doing well, just extra busy this time of year. Good to be back.

  3. Such interesting textures: one being right now recycled the other on the way to be recycled I may hope, In between in the box :-)

  4. Hello Mike. I really like the second image of foam packing. I appreciate three dimensional patterns in a repetitive formation. The shadows give nice detail to the form.
