At the Coast — Lens-Artists Challenge #253

Hi all πŸ˜ƒ My entry for this week’s challenge, set by Brian of Bushboys World: Fragments.

On our last few visits to the coast, we’ve seen lots of fragments, small & large. Starting off with driftwood; washed up fragments of trees & even finished wood.

A closer look at the beach finds fragments of shells & other sea-life.

Shots of fragments of an object need to be viewed together to form a whole…

…a lobster pot.

Fragments of old coastal defences remind us of darker times when the world was at war.

A boat buried in the sand; the fragments we see shows us the whole picture.

…and finally, Fragments by Manic Street Preachers.

  1. Nicely done Jez – it seems we were on the same page this week. We very rarely get driftwood on our beach, probably because we are a barrier island, so I especially enjoyed yours. Also the images and thoughts about thing left behind from times of war – again not something we have here but you are so right, we are fortunate to live in time of peace. Terrific post.

  2. A great collection of seaside stuff Jez. That boat in the sand looks so unreal. I like the shell and the sea worn ropes πŸ™‚
    PS Good music too πŸ‘

  3. Driftwood’s such exquisite art. Beautiful findings. In fact it seemed as if your walk gifted you a museum on the beach. Natural art, cultural art, history. Vey nice Jez.

  4. Such a colourful diverse and incredible collection, a link between past and present, …wonder what’ll be collected in future beach combs ..β€¦βœ¨

Great to hear your thoughts πŸ˜ƒ
