    I'm getting in first this month, as I'm not sure of any of the other options, and I know a bunch of folk went past this after I did! Wetsuit abandoned by the path beyond Bedruthan Steps. How could you forget a bright red wetsuit? I don't know, but it was weighted down with a rock on the top of the wall...

    Pentax LX, Pentax-M 35-70, my first ever roll of Fujufilm Pro 400.

    That was taken at Calke Abbey this year. I last went several years ago and that room is pretty much identical. Someone seems to have forgotten to move their exhibits around a bit :) It was taken on the yashica electro. This picture also reminds me I keep forgetting to take it out again...

    A shotgun casing, left in the grass at the festival I went to recently. There were loads of these, by the entrance to the woods - I didn't see any deer about, though. Taken on my trusty Olympus XA4, on Fuji Superia 400. I love the vignetting this camera produces, and the bright, sharp qualities of Superia. Cheap, but possibly one of my favourite colour films.

    Taken on a walk along the River Severn in Worcester on a dull March day. I bet there were tears before bedtime when the poor youngster realised they'd left their pride and joy behind......

    I sat in the park at lunchtime and watched this lady wonder around on her own for a few minutes and thought about who she might have to keep her company or if her family had forgotten about her completely.

    Our garden is littered with these poor guys. When Spud was small he would 'play' with them by driving nails through them, melting them using a magnifying glass or just clumping them with a hammer. Sid. Years later they regularly turn up, half buried, wounded, but still around. They own the garden...

    Olympus OM-1, F Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 & Rollei Retro 400s.

    Taken back in January and put to one side as I thought it might be a candidate for this month's topic in case I didn't get anything I liked better (I didn't).

    Forgotten Objects. Canon A1, Canon 50mm f1.4, Kodak Ektar 100, using natural light.

    [​IMG]Forgotten Objects by J White, on Flickr

    Objects in the photo:

    A First World War trench map of Montauban (one of the first battles of the Somme) dated 2nd June 1916; A forgotten object rescued from a tea chest full of junk found dumped on a building site around 1975.

    A mystery object (thought to be a tinderbox with built-in burning lens) found in an antique shop in the late 1970s. An object so forgotten its original purpose eluded me for years.

    A Victorian inkwell; found embedded in the bank of the River Clwyd in North Wales in 1976, another rescued forgotten object.

    An Ensign Midget miniature folding camera; once a desirable, high-tech, handbag accessory, now just a forgotten object.

    A Watkins Bee Meter; once essential kit for the keen amateur photographer, now just a forgotten object.

    A gentleman’s pocket watch; once an everyday timepiece, now just a forgotten object.

    An old pound note; from the days when £1 folded but bought a lot more, now just a forgotten object.

    A box of rhubarb pills… it was empty when I found it in an antiques shop may years ago, but I imagine the contents (and their medicinal effect) were probably best forgotten!

    We've just moved into a new house with a smallish workshop at the back (a glorified shed), and after we moved in I began sweeping all the rubbish out and generally tidying it up. I put the broom under one of the cupboards and pulled out this stuffed cat toy that had been tied up with some string. I did panic for a split second before I realised it was just a toy that had been left behind, but it still creeps me out now!
