Theme Day - Rust and Ruins

Theme Day here on City Daily Photo, this months theme is Rust and Ruins. This was taken on an old gate in my neighborhood. So many gates are painted and few are left natural as they age.

It looks like it might be a heavy gate. Sure makes me wonder what's on the other side!

Nice choice for the theme day. I also like leaving things "natural".

I hadn't thought of a rusty gate. I bet I could walk down my alley and find one or two. Nice shot.

What a perfect find Randy, rusty old locks are always a little bit intriguing don't you think :)

Judy said...

I bet those old hinges make a lovely noise when the gate is opened.

Such a lovely patina on the gate and a new heavy lock!

What is it about rusty things that seem to beckon to photographers? We all love them!

Natural always seems better.

It's funny how rust has a strange appeal. I'll let Stefan do the job though! :-)

Will the lock match the gate in a couple of years??
