I have no idea what this thing is — a picture frame with two openings, covered in algae? It was shot during low tide near Kingsborough.

        Your showing your age. Cinderblocks haven’t been made in years. Its a cement block.

      It’s not a thing I have much experience with in my daily life, so, as Steve Martin would say, “Well, excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me!”

     is it iron, some kind of ship strap buckle?

      Looks like part of a belt buckle to me

        Yes I agree a belt buckle that’s what it reminds of

          Apparently it was larger, so it might have come from a ship.

    OK, Randy. I can’t tell if that’s a rust spot on the right…ergo buckle or how big the muscles are….possible portion of a cinderblock.
    Proportion man, if it was a cinderblock that would be some corse sand.
    I’m getting a headache.
