    I enjoy seeing someone pick a subject that never occurred to me especially when they do it well.

    Wow! Now isn’t that both interesting and beautiful. You always manage to capture detail with such finesse.

    What a rusty old piece of metal you found. I have always liked looking at rust deposits. As long as they were not on something I wanted to preserve :-). I find it interesting to look at the patterns, and also to flake off pieces of rust.

    Remember that old puzzle game where you have to guess what it is from a super close up? This rust looks like a close up of fried chicken. :)

  8. The formations are alluring. My 16-year-old grandson has been taking photographs of rust for years. He is quite good at it. Rust’s abstract quality is often missed. Nicely done.
