In response to Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge: 2015 Week 31.
The sight of this anchor that was dragged a little in the soft sand is odd because I still cannot pinpoint what about it caught my attention. Like how Cee describes oddball, such a sight fits into no category, and I cannot bring myself to delete it.
The anchor could have drawn me over because an anchor is one of my mother’s favourite symbols. My mom likes seagulls and anchors.
The anchor could have pulled me in because it resembles a cross. Crosses resonate with me somewhat because I attended a Catholic school for six years.
The anchor could have caught my sight because it was new to me. I never see anchors in my urban surroundings since they belong to a class of objects that appear in the media and textbooks in the city.
The anchor could have attracted me because of the pattern created in the sand as the boat drew it along.
The anchor could have brought me over because it was rusty, and I am curious about a whole rusted anchor.
I cannot pinpoint why I took this photo, but I cannot delete it. What an oddball!
Are anchors a familiar sight to you?
