Having posted up a number of black and white images I felt the need for a splash of colour. I found this old aerosol can, weathered beyond product recognition, on Pettycur Bay. When I began taking photos of ‘found objects’ from the beach I had a tendency to think that these things – old shoes, cans, bottles, cardigans – had been washed ashore, but the more I scan the beach the more it becomes apparent that they left there. Beach parties, picnics, rough sleepers, local boat owners all leave or lose things that become part of the shoreline.
