This week we tasked our Suffolk iWitness members with snapping imperfections from across the county and beyond.

We wanted our members to take pictures of forgotten places, items that are rusty or broken and old cars or boats that we love despite their imperfections.

Pictures of anything and everything were sent in, from stranded boats to a tractor that is hidden behind wild grasses - with one from as far away as Scotland.

This week’s winner comes from Monique Varley-Nan, who captured a striking feeling of boats abandoned at the shore. They certainly won’t be setting sail anytime soon.
