What a motley collection, Barbara. An open safety pin (cue H&S, that could be lethal), some wrought iron, a metal weight and some dert great big spanners, all entangled by some form of string bondage fetish it would seem.Grin

My wedding anniversary next month and what a superb present these rusty spanners would make.
I don't think much of the way you wrap up presents however,
and you can keep the safety pin.
After what will be 37 years of marriage,
a nappy pin is the last thing I will need !!

The shot is interesting. The visual is very efective! An almost painterly look with all that rich rust
As for the safety pin.... It really adds to the composition. IB

I was in the middle of looking at this when my internet connection went down. Back again - that little safety pin just makes this. At first I thought it was some of Mick's rust, to find it is your rust Smile
A wonderful textural and interesting found still life.
