Good morning, and I hope everyone had a great weekend.  It’s a quick post again for today with another shot from my trip to York last week.  This old lobster trap was part of a massive “sculpture” of probably 100+ traps that was shaped like a Christmas Tree and wrapped with lights.  Most modern lobster traps are now made of vinyl coated metal, and wooden ones are rarely seen anymore.   I still really like the look of the older wooden ones, which is why I was drawn to these for a closer look.  For whatever reason I didn’t think to grab a shot of the full sculpture, but I’ll hopefully remember to the next time I’m there.

    love this, Steven. Really nice shot, man.
    You’re right. We hardly see these old traps anymore, except in the ceiling of a seafood restaurant . 🙂
