I remember in school, we had a project to go out and find and take pictures of rust. Strange project, but it help you see the small things in life.

My entry in the contest where I try to find the beauty located within the decay.

I don't expect much from this and I am out of practice from taking basketball action shots for 6 weeks straight..LOL. Bare with me as I try and get back into the swing.

A very good entry for the contest Opie. You scored a double with the two subjects. They will grow old together like a couple that has been married for years. I like the thoughts behind this and the visual is great as well.

I hope your action basketball shots have turned out better then mine. The lighting in the gym is atrocious.

Excellent post.

Great textures and colors in this, Paul. I like the way the wood looks. That chain sure could use some sand blasting. LOL. Very good entry for the contest. Good luck with it.
