Broken Bottle

Number Three of my Lost and Found Treasures.
I tend to pick things up from my walks round the reservoir, as I am sure many people do. Together they form a particular idea of what I see and what interests me. Other’s would choose different things.
The shore line of a reservoir is not quite as exciting as the sea shore so perhaps we reservoir dwellers have to regard ordinary things as extraordinary.

The muddy broken bottle and the sketches.
This is a very ordinary bottle but still capable of throwing some great shapes!
