baby Northern Right Whale, killed by a ship strike.
it's against the law to take any natural things like rocks or shells and I hadn't thought to bring my light tent, either (doh!)) so I just took photos on site. That's why there's only garbage in the still life.
But then I have to admit that I find the trash almost as interesting as the stones. Shotgun shells, a puzzle piece, sea glass, rope, and the top of a soda can. A wide variety of recreational uses! And I've never found a jigsaw piece before. Or a dead whale. Altogether a memorable day of beachcombing.
In the still life: Pulpboard jigsaw puzzle piece, sea glass, aluminum soda can top, shotgun shell, fishing rope.
