Nothing to the Imagination……

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.

Photography: The Grit & Rust

There is something about old equipment on a farm, ranch, logging operation, industrial setting that catches my eye. Not the new stuff, but rather the abandoned. Why is that? History… wondering what was…how it ended? The extra benefit is I see much, much more later that I didn’t see in the moment.
