River Objects

A sunny day and low tide last week revealed lots of river objects along the Thames.

River Objects is my name for those things abandoned or washed up along the foreshore.

There is something about how things are worn by being in the river or have their original surface obscured by mud, sludge and slime that makes them more abstract, the usual clues and markers are missing and only their form is left.  Sometimes you can recognise what they once were, often you have no idea of their age, purpose or origin.
