Lobster Traps

When I was a kid. lobster traps were all made of subtle grayed wood, but today they are multi-colored extravaganzas of wire mesh, bait bags, net, rope and bricks.

Freeze and Thaw

The other day I went shopping for groceries and as I pulled out of the parking lot I noticed the shadows in the broken pavement. It was afternoon and the damp morning streets had mostly dried, leaving a white edge of salt along each crack. I went home to pick up my camera and returned to the store so I could photograph these wonderful circles and lines.

Goldenrod Shadows Drawing
