Two days into 2009 and the year has lost its seasonal hangover. The freezing fog that has blighted us for several days (making taking photographs a trial as well as the damp cold seeping through to the bones) has dispersed. The sun shone and temperatures rose to a couple of degrees above zero.

A lovely day, then, to get out to the shops by way of the Channelside. Lots of lovely things to see and snap, but I was taken by the pile of fishboxes piled up on the quay. I wonder how they got where they are – it’s not as if they are from Irish Sea ports after all. West of Ireland, mostly, and Pittenweem on the coast of Fife. Ah well, ours not to reason why!

I wonder if the various fishing coops offer a bounty for their boxes?
