Day 37 - Aged and Rusted

There is a road I drive down all the time and for the first time the other day I noticed a bunch of old rusted pieces of what I assume is farming equipment used as decor in front of a giant construction business. Old tillers and plow looking things and this wagon that I am guessing carried water sitting there all aged and rusted adding to their beauty.

Can you post some more? Sounds like a great collection of old, rusty, neglected, abandoned machinery of days gone by. Thanks for the great view!

Really like the light--it adds to the photo. I can't wait to get out and take photos like this around my area. Sigh, it's snowing as I type this!

What a great composition, the piece is so cool. I love how the rust color gives it that antiquated look!!

You live in a really cool place that gives you all kinds of fun photo opps. Either that or you're really good at seeing what everyone else passes by and takes for granted. I think it just might be a little bit of both! This shot has a lot of character. Getting in really close on some of the parts to show the rust or aging wood might be kind of cool.

Amazing light and composition. I think the processing adds to the antiquity of the picture. Very well done.
