Photo challenge #195 'Rust'. It's been two weeks since Sabrina posted the last photo challenge and even though we've gotten away from a regular schedule here, probably time for another challenge. I don't have a list of all the previous challenges, but I don't recall having one that features rust. If I am wrong, let me know. Rusty items often make very interesting photos. Lets see what you can find.
Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at any time!
~ HAVE FUN
My first two pictures are close ups of a barrier across the path we walk on in the mornings. The third one is of a factory roof.

I'm glad I checked my email on the way to work this morning and got the notification of a new thread in the forum. I have several favourite rust spots on my walk from the bus up to work, LOL, and I found a few more too.
One of the bridges across the river Liffey. I took one of the other side but the date wasn't rusty on it. After I crossed it and looked back, I could see that the date on the far side was rusty, and I thought it was more fun to see the date .
The next three are all on the road I walk up beside the tram track. (The old hospital that I had a photo of for my last challenge is along that road).
The next one is the upper yard in work with parking spaces - I'd never noticed that rust before.
And the last one is the railing outside a disused church. It used to be a lighting shop, I got my Anglepoise lamp for my work desk there. It's recently been sold so I'm curious to see what it will be next.
This is one I'll be back with more photos for, I love it! Thanks, Ina.
Just saw the word rust on Ina's posting and thought I'd take a look, lovely photos Sabrina, I've never been to Dublin but our son and DIL have sailed across from Wales when they went with DIL's family.
The only rust here is on my craft room door, needs painting
I took a few more shots on our walk yesterday. It's easy to find rust when you walk along a cottage road that has limited winter access and where people leave things outside in the weather. Well, it's a lot harder to get the photos uploaded, so I'll try again later.
Here are some rust photos from me. I hope to get more shots. The Saguaro is made from pick ax heads. The planter has a live Ironwood tree in it and both structures were created by Jeff Hobbs in honor of his cousin Pill Hebets. Phil originated a tree boxing methodology that enabled over one million native plants to be salvaged rather than bulldozed.
Audrey, your photos are awesome! What a sculpture! The close up really shows off the pick ax heads. Too bad we don't have more people taking part in the photo challenges, because it is fascinating to see objects from different parts of the world.
I love looking at the photos but I've been trying to think where I could find a rusty photo, I will take my camera out tonight and maybe I can find a rusty boat or anchor in the marina.
I'm not much of a photographer we leave that to our DIL.
Jan, you start a response, click on 'go advanced', then look at all the icons on the top and see the one with something like a paper clip? click on it and it will say attachments and open a small window which will have a place where you can upload a file from your computer click browse and choose a photo and then click upload. You need to make your photo file small before you do this......I usually make mine into 900 X 675 pixels. I hope this helps.
My photo is of the replica Phoenician Boat that was found in the waters just outside of the harbour, I couldnt get close enough to show the rust on them, but they are old too, I think they were purposely made that way though as they are made of some kind of metal, they are in the middle of the traffic island so hard to get too close!!
They have become quite an icon in our area which I think is a great idea, their image is used as logos such as our local teams football shirts, we have been on a glass bottomed boat trip over the area where they are now protected.
Makes us smile as they paint the traffic island around he boats every year, as you can see with blue for the sea and beige for the sands, the Spanish have no idea how to drive around a traffic island, or how to park but that's another story, but they keep them well looked after, we have two with boats on, one with a strange sail, one with a tractor and another with a miner as this was a mining town years ago, mining for tin and silver.
Jan, when I post my pictures, I click on go advanced, scroll down a bit then click on manage attachments.
I have some more rust items. These were taken at the house of a yoga friend. This was my second visit because I didn't bring my camera the first time. Unfortunately there were a lot of shadows on the wall. I will have to try to get another visit so I can photograph the other things. She and her husband have a lot of neat old things.
The first photo is a mop wringer (or whatever it's called). The next two photos are old cans and lids on mason jars. Then one of things for carrying/lifting large blocks of ice. A small feeder, a prickly pear sculpture and last a very old heater.
