Lobster Trap Pile Up by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery
Lobster Trap Pile Up (Select the photo to see in a larger format)
It's a rite of passage every spring. When walking along the shore by open waters, mangled lobster traps appear. Sure as there are blossoms on the trees and tulips in bloom, lobster trap detritus surfaces.
I often join in cleaning up lobster trap remnants. Some see this as mere trash. To me, this is someone's coastal livelihood. A trap lost means that a family business missed a potential catch. Furthermore, they have the equipment to replace. It's the cycle of work on the coast.

In a traditional rite of Spring, lobster traps piled up on the rocky shore of Whale Rock Preserve in Narragansett, Rhode Island. Remnants of winter storms.
