Fossils old and new

November 8th, 2009

SparkPlugTrying to learn macro photography. 

This picture of items found on the beach after last year’s land slip just east of Lyme Regis on the Jurassic Coast. It brought down a 1950′s Council dump as well as a fresh collection of fossils.

The ammonite fragment is just like the first one I found here on my first visit fifty years ago. The sparking plug is a fossil in the making which might puzzle future generations when all cars are electric.

    I tried to contact you via your posted e-mail in the “about me” section but it doesn’t seem to work. I really like the “fossil” spark plug; it is pretty neat. My husband is a rock hound and would love to have something like this. Would you be interested in selling it to me, perhaps I could give it to him as a Christmas gift.

    Please contact me and let me know your thoughts.
