Kelp me

Discarded kelp, yep yep

When fishers reel their lines in, sometimes they find they’ve caught an unwanted bit of seaweed.

Just as you’d do with a stray hair, they untangle it and cast it aside— not back into the sea, necessarily, because that would be an invitation to get the exact same bit of seaweed immediately caught back in their lines.

And like many organic things, this cast-off kelp looks lovely when it’s backlit.


…Side note, while I was prostrate on the sidewalk to get this shot, a stranger came over to ask if I was okay. AWK-WARD.
