Black Country Museum, near Dudley. Pun intended, oh yes, as the category "still life" says it all. And I think 'rust' can be considered within the 'orange' family for the latest contest too.

Good people are good because they've come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success, you know.

Love abstracts and this one works for me. Lots of texture with that rust and the bright orange makes it perfect for the contest. Good luck!

And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
