ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER "R"


Today is ABC Wednesday and the letter is R. R is for RUST. Rust can be colorful , full of design and texture. I think Rust is a great subject for photographers.
I am posting this early as My Husband , Myself and Mr. Mapper and family are going to spend the Thanksgiving holidays in Washington State. We won't be home for a few days and I probably won't be posting during that time.
To those of you in the States, Happy Thanksgiving and to all , have a wonderful weekend.
As always click on the photo to enlarge it.

Ypu've really picked up the texture and colour well. Happy Thanksgiving :o)

Isadora said...

Oh, that poor door had certainly seen better days - but then it would not have made it into your selection for RUST :)

Mike said...

Fantastic picture. I hope you don't mind but I've "borrowed" your picture. A big sheet of rust is something I've been looking for for ages to use as a texture layer in a Photoshop project I'm working on.

Have a nice few days in Washington State, We live 15 minutes drive from the US border and Washington State and sometimes cross the border for shopping items that are cheaper across the "line"

have a good journey - just hope your old jalopy isn't the kind we used to call "rust-buckets"

Have an enjoyable holidays with your family :)

I would not want to spoil you dinner but just remember to enjoy the turkey.

I also like texture and rust is one of the great levelers in our lives.

John Roberts said...

What is it about old stuff that we find so interesting? The colors? The textures? Whatever it is, we both keep coming back to it don't we!

Kerri said...

Oooooh - I do like this shot...love the colors and texture.
Have fun with your family and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Laurie said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

The textures in this make it look like a painting made with a palette knife in oil. This is beautiful!

Paula said...

Sue, Great photo - as usual. :) Hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving.

Beverly said...

Have a good trip to Washington. Don't eat too much turkey.

Rust can be very beautiful indeed, Photowannabe, as you demonstrate so ably here.

I send you wishes for happy holidays.

Jessica Foster said...

Somehow, in its destruction, rust is beautiful.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Hin Man said...

I would never thought of 'rust', a great photo on a rusty texture and it actually looks very pretty with the rusty color.

Sidney said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
Enjoy the holidays!
Great find!

Happy Thanksgiving and drive safely. Rust does have its personalities.

WalksFarWoman said...

That's a door and a half even if it's not quite a full door - if you know what I mean! I agree rust is hauntingly spectacular. Great shot. Have a lot of fun and enjoy your holiday.

Kate said...

Me said...

Rust is neat. I will go right there with you. I fact, I think I have taken a good 50 or 60 frames of 'rust' lately, for future posts on my photography site.
I hope you are enjoying WA. It is a wonderful, wonderful place.
Thanks, and Happy Thanksgiving!

This is fascinating.

I see lots of faces and action

barkfoot said...

I never used to like rust, mainly because it kept forming on my car, but there is a huge retaining wall made of heavy steel panels next to a canal perhaps 20 foot high. It has aged beautifully forming a lovely velvet of rust. The once industrial ugliness now makes a fuzzy backdrop for the greenery and looks lovely.

Ratzfatz said...

Yes, rust is nice ... ok, I would hate to see it on my car :-)
Have a nice weekend!!

Lavenderlady said...

Oh, I wish I read this earlier. I wonder where you are in Washington state. I hope you had a great holiday.

imac said...

Hi, just to let you know canal post 2 is now up.

Salty said...

Rust is an natural art form and you captured it Sooo well. I do hope you are enjoying your time with family and look forward to new post upon your return.

Elizabeth said...

Wonderful photos. A joy to see.
I have just started taking pictures -we live in Marrakech where there is so much that is beautiful.
Best

AphotoAday said...

Count me in as another who loves rust... Can't exactly figure out what the door goes to, but I'm guessing it is a little door to a utility meter...

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving -- am glad that so many have stopped by to wish you well...

And hope you enjoyed Washington State -- that's where my parents were from, so I used to visit that beautiful corner of the country frequently...

Moi said...

I totally agree with you..rust is a great subject for photography.....i only wish i could find rusted objects more easily around :D

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving with the family. Hope it was not too cold in WA :)

susan said...

I have to laugh at myself because I got lost in all those lovely colors searching for the "R"...then I realized it was the rust!

You should've told me you were going to be in my neck of the woods! I hope you've been enjoying your time with your family.

CG said...

Rust can be absolutely fascinating. Great capture!
