Lost sock

12/52 for the group T189ers weekly alphabet challenge

This week's theme: F is for found object.

This wasn't what I actually set out to photograph. I had been keeping my eye out for any interesting objects while walking my friends' dog and I'd spotted a) a discarded milk shake bottle and b) a hubcap. I thought the hubcap might work nicely, but when I drove up the lane again today, I couldn't see it and there wasn't anywhere handy to park.

I decided to fall back on the milk shake bottle and took a few shots (I put the bottle and a discarded carrier bag into my car afterwards. I wasn't going to leave them littering the countryside.)

However, on my way back to the main road, I drove past this lost sock which someone has found and tied to a tree, presumably in the hope that the owner will return and find it.
