Art, Creativity, Photography, Travel, Writing

The Daily Post’s weekly photograph challenge this week is OBJECT.

“Our photographs tell stories, big and small. Some of our images are landscapes, offering wide and sweeping views of a scene; these pictures might tell the tales of an entire city, or a tapestry of stories of many people. Some photographs, like portraits, focus on individuals, while still-life moments capture the beauty (and often treasured stories) of belongings and found objects.

In this week’s challenge, I’d like you to use one tangible object as both your inspiration and subject. It can be the obvious focal point of your shot — like my husband’s juggling ball above, snapped on a beach on the north shore of Kauai. Or you can get creative and find other ways to feature your object — the only requirement is it must be somewhere in your frame.”

The recent windy weather has washed ashore a mass of flotsam and jetsam – seaweed by the mountain, cuttlefish bones, dead squid, dead fish and dead jelly fish, the largest of which was the size of a dinner plate,

together with the usual assortment of glass and plastic junk to which colonies of barnacles have attached themselves: beer bottles, plastic cigarette lighters, plastic bottles and an assortment of shoes.

Barnacles have attached themselves to natural detritus as well: bits of rope, palm leaves, coconuts, and this fruit.

on my return the fruit had been kicked open to reveal its internal structure

Does anyone know what tree it comes from? It’s about the size of a football.
