The China Collection

Listener Don Bland sent this photo with an explanatory message: "Happy New Year Mark. My wife Mary and I have collected beach china from the beaches of Hopkins Landing and Soames Point for many years. On the occasion of our 40th wedding anniversary, I asked local photographer Barry Haynes to photograph them and produce a print. Many of these pieces are a hundred years old. Before there was local garbage collection the locals simply took their garbage out in a row boat and dumped it in the local waters. This garbage included their broken china which washes up on the local beaches."

What a lovely, textured and mysterious puzzle. - Mark
