Getting Rusty

I see interesting and unique beauty in old weathered rusty things (I tell my face that every morning) and so I share with you these shots of what I consider a form of rustic beauty ...


I took out my usual brand of witty, exceptionally clever captions. Sometimes it's better to see what you see without any distraction. I will say that I see fire and ocean and worms and mountains, just to name a few.

nice shots. I like rusty things too. in fact, I plan on mounting some of my cast glass on rusted steel.

Some are quite lovely, and others look just, well, rusty!

I'm always trying to keep rust at bay so I admire those who see it as beautiful rather than challenging:-)

I love your Dear Charlie post. I've been watching bits and pieces of his antics and it's a combination of sad, entertaining, and pitiful. I'm wondering how far his bottom is. but I digress. I'm really liking your rust images. we spot a whole lot when we look for it! I love the gate top just up from the last, but they're each pretty remarkable. I hope you have a beautiful weekend Dianne!

the old car and the curb shot just below it are my favs ... but I love them all .... they are beautiful like you xo

Linda said...

Enjoyed the photos. I've seen a lot of rust in my time.

HAHAHAHAAHHAHAA! OMG, you are so funny! Yeah, I tell my face that every morning too!

I'm with you, Dianne....I see interesting and unique beauty in old weathered rusty things. There's a rawness to them. And oddly enough, a strength. They tell a story. That's why I love old cities.

Gorgeous photos! LOVE the chains!

Have a wonderful weekend, dear lady!

X to you and the gang!

Those are lovely Dianne, I like how the rust forms different patterns and on the 7th photo really makes the post look bluer than it probably is.

Great shots Dianne but I particularly love the last one of the chains.

Mike said...

I'd take more pictures like this but I'm a little ..... you know ... rusty.

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

Very well done Ms. Dianne. You have an eye and it shows...

These are really WONDERFUL, Dianne! And I know exactly what you mean about 'rust' being beautiful....Seeing this whole series--I think it could be a book! Just keep taking more pictures, my dear....Your eye is very very keen...!

Hilary said...

I quite like rust too and some of these images are wonderful. I love that wormy chain.

Happy Elf Mom said...

The pics are so real, I can almost feel the rusty dust on my fingers! :)

Jinksy said...

An exciting collection of colours and textures - the last one is scrumptious, and the fifth one down - yum!

ds said...

Yeah, I saw the ocean, and the fire--and the worms. Yuck to the worms. Hurrah to everything else!

What I said on your other blog ;>)

These shots are amazing Dianne, you have some wicked talent with the camera and it seems to be improving weekly.

I wanted to let you know that I’m back and in Florida! (Just in case you need a good connection to stupidity down here.)

Great motif! I love the close-up of the stained wall. reminds me of album cover Nine Inch Nails' 'The Downward Spiral'!
