public art, Lyme Regis beach, Dorset

one day someone decided to collect some the beach detritus and start assembling it into a sculpture around a huge piece of driftwood, as the days went on...

 more and more pieces were added by other people (including me) as they passed by
and more and more pieces were added
and more and more pieces were added

world war 2 pillbox, Kimmeridge Bay, Dorset

smile please 

i gleaned the following information from a website that has photographs and details of all the remaing pillboxes in the uk: "a type 25 pillbox is now situated 15 feet from the eroding cliff edge. the entrance is 26ins wide x 39ins high; walls 11ins thick; height of structure 7ft 3ins; concrete raft 9ins thick; 4 embrasures 9ins high x 12ins wide at front, tapering inside. It has a concrete roof laid on corrugated iron sheeting"
and you thought taking photographs of rust was odd!
