5 comments on “The Texture of Rust 15

  1. This series really speaks to me – just excellent. Such a range of color and texture and shape and form. I am a real sucker for well developed rust and once again, your images really capture something of the wonder and beauty of your subject. Ahh, the patina of time… Great work! Thanks!

    • Thank you so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. We share a delight in the same type of compositions and textures. It can be fascinating and beautiful in unexpected places if you take the time to observe the details.

      • So true! Goethe said that “nature is an open book”. We just have to open our eyes and ears (and hearts) to read it and hopefully then we begin turning the pages… And, on a related note, John Cage said, “anything can be art, all you have to do is change your mind”. It’s all in our perception… Keep up the excellent work!

  2. I agree with the above comment ! I find many of these rusted bolt heads on Newport Bridge here in Middlesbrough… sadly it’s being ” cleaned ” and re-painted 😦

    • Thank you, Cath. It is always sad to find that a valued source of interesting macro photographs has been cleaned up and restored, or even completely removed and replaced! There were once some well weathered wooden groynes held together by rusting bolts on a nearby beach. Behind was an amazing concrete sea wall decorated with natural striped stains – all has now disappeared and new, more secure sea defences installed.
