based on photographs taken of Branch beach, Newfoundland.

At low tide, I photographed the curving line of seaweed, pebbles, and assorted jetsam that the sea had deposited on the sand.
In the 30' drawing I developed from those photographs, I also inserted objects found on other Newfoundland beaches and from scavenging in the back laneways of Toronto, the city where I live.
