MysticTheme - "The Colors of Yesteryear"

by Brenda Nelson April. 20, 2011 2763 views

All of these old tools and household items are tarnished with age. Rust is the color of days gone by.

Others who may be posting for Mystic's Theme of “Rust” can be found herel [photoblog.com].

(I can't use my normal edit tools on my new netbook, so these are from Picasa, which isn't quite as sharp, but will suffice in a pinch!)

An anvil still stands in an old blacksmith shop

A rusty screw holds this piece of metal in place

A rusty scrub board hangs on a wall, as seen through the handle of an old stove-top iron

Decorations and designers are now lost in the ruin of age

Rust is about all that holds this 1880's wagon together now!

nice set , but I'm afraid I'm a bit tired of seeing rust at the moment as cleaning my new home which has loads.

Love the shadow on the screw in #2, and the composition in #3 shot through the old iron. Really good series.

Good eye, Brenda...you found some great rust looks and angles here! I'd say....Picasa and netbook worked!!!
