Rather than presenting the image with no explanation and leaving it to your imagination re what the image is, I decided to explain each image. Yesterday afternoon, the sun high, I visited an old restoration/recycle company. In back, near a loading dock, they store all manner of metal pieces for creative renovations or industrial art. The shadows were crisp, the pieces rusted and ordinary, save a few. So, I took a few shots and here they are. Some are obvious and some would have been good ‘I wonder what that is?’ moments. The back loading dock had all manner of objects that are unique, decorative pieces.
A very heavy duty spring
The top of that heavy duty spring looking down onto a steel grid.
A steel plate with a square cutout on top. The sunlight is seen penetrating below.
The shadow of an old metal shelf lays over the top of a lid to some container beneath.
A galvanized watering can spout.
A heavy duty, iron wagon wheel’s hub and spokes on a cement deck
Large metal bin for recycled materials on a concrete deck.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
