Celebration of Rust

As promised, here are some more images from Willowpool Garden and Antique Centre featuring rusty objects that can be found piled up there. I find them beautiful and intriguing.

I love the fact that although they have outlived their usefulness, these objects continue to evolve, developing deep colours and textures.

Is this the final resting place for these old radiators?

The layers of peeling paint would be a great source of inspiration for a textile piece.

I tweaked the image a bit, increasing the contrast.

I know I am not alone in my apprecaiation of rust- when Mr Dotty goes to Skye he takes more photos of corrugated roofs and dilapidated drainpipes than he does of the views!
Let me know which unexpected objects you find beautiful.
