Very nice, Marilyn! This is very interesting, with good detail. It must have laid in this spot for decades...

Marilyn Whiteley on August 12, 2007

Thanks, Ryan. It was lying on display outside the grist mill in the other photo (now a heritage site). Of course you're seeing one side. Along the edge (which was maybe about 8 inches in width) were regularly spaced little pockets/scoops--I don't know what to call them. Anyway, it must have been some part of the machinery of the grist mill. There was also a nice mill stone on display, with good grooves in it, but I found it even harder to photograph satisfactorily than this!

Very nice composition Marilyn. Ciao :)

Thanks Alex and badge. Do you ever look at something and think, "There's a picture there somewhere ..." and then struggle a bit to find it? For me, this was one of those times.

Greetings Marilyn, If there is a picture in there I trust you to be able to find it. Another great addition to your wonderful collection. Thanks so much for sharing your photographs and your wisdom.

Thanks, Rich, for your generous comment. This is the kind of photo I generally hide away on my computer or in my vast files of color slides and never show anybody! But I remembered that Ryan likes rust shots so I got up my nerve.

Many thanks, Rosina. I look forward to arriving in your fascinating country two weeks from now.

Very nice Marilyn. Thanks for your kind comments. You've tagged this 'rust'. I read an article in Photolife by Richard Martin who called this 'wabi-sabi' and so that is what I have tagged my collection of rust and flaking things. Ainars and I must have the same wife and daughters!!

Marilyn Whiteley on December 19, 2007

I noticed your "wabi-sabi" and like it. I looked at a number of your images, and they stimulated two thoughts: I may add that tag to some of mine, and I may have courage to take more such photos (which I have done in the past, in my pre-digital days).

One other thought: it may be that all "rust" is also "wabi-sabi," but not all "wabi-sabi" is "rust"! So there may still be use for a "rust" tag.
