Rust is pretty

I didn't know a rusty old tractor could be so colorful.

V and I were outside, meandering in the yard, when she headed for the old tractor and climbed up to sit in the seat.

After working tirelessly for several minutes trying to convince her to let me take a few photos of her actually looking at the camera,

I gave up and went to work on the rest of the tractor.

I think I could take a thousand pictures of this tractor and still find more cool parts of it to photograph.

... to I have no idea what this is, but it sure has lots of pretty colors.

This part looks useful, but I don't know what it does. I'm not particularly knowledgeable about machinery.

But that doesn't stop me from taking pictures of it.

Rust can be so gorgeous. I spent one visit home in the fall taking photos of a rusty piece of metal that happened to have a heart-shaped shadow on it. I loved it.

I just love the colors here.


Love it!


I just love rusty old stuff - such character and life! Great photographs!


oh what colors in the parts of an old tractor
~ you really found an unusual pallet! V so cute as always!

wishes to you and yours a 2009 full of fun!


Rust is amazing--I love that it's actually the same process as fire, just really, really slow.

Beautiful photos, of the rust and of V--what I would pay for stunning eyes like that!


Rust is very pretty, but I have an irrational fear of rust. Why? Who the heck knows.

V is gorgeous. Lovely pictures! :)


My recent comment about peace in your photos still holds. It seems that you have achieved a sort of zen moment - I hope it's reflective of a personal achievement as well although I know times are rough right now. It certainly doesn't show in your photos.


Rust is pretty! And so is V - she is just so adorable, even when she isn't looking at the camera.

That second photo of V is gorgeous! She looks like a little lady. :-)

I love the rusty photos. I took a bunch of photos this fall of an old train station I discovered in a state park by us....I loved all of the textures and colors and parts and pieces. I downloaded those pictures and saved them...somewhere (grrr. I hate when I do that!).

Happy New Year!

Rust is awesome. I had no idea it was so colorful until I stared taking pictures of it.

Great photos!


I love the last photo in this set. It is so interesting and beautiful!
