A Post from the Past 
I spotted these stacked lobster pots on the Cobb in Lyme Regis, Dorset. I liked the way they were arranged: their symmetry.
Whilst down on the nearby shore of Monmouth Beach, exposed at low tide, were massive reefs constructed by the honeycomb tube worm Sabellaria alveolata (Linnaeus). By some kind of serendipity, the shape of the apertures, and the way the tubes are stacked is very reminiscent of the lobster pots on the quay. Not life mimicking art but craft mimicking life, perhaps?

Either photograph alone would have been very fine. The juxtaposition is even better.
Thank you, Linda. I was struck by the similarity.
