Many thanks for your kind reception of the gatekeeper on the pincushion . a very special thank you to Matt for the UA

__________
It was time for some rust. Last weekend I had no chance to capture any other critters than tits but whilst searching round our friend Fabrice's garden I studied the debris of his workshop.
This was part of a big machine table, the bigger picture will come as V2. I like the dried hay on the rust very much

Very difficult to choose between the two - I really like the double arch in v1 but also the sweeping archway in v2 - the texture and colour are great in both, and I think I'm going to give my vote to v2 - or maybe ..............................SmileSmile

An image which immediately bore the resemblance of a prehistoric cave painting, beautiful muted colours.

A fascinating combination of the Vegetable and the Mineral, with just possibly a contribution from the Animal world too. Excellent abstract work.
Mikbee must have been in the Dockers' Club all night as he hasn't contributed yet - so he doesn't know what he's missing!

Something's definitely watching me, Annette, and I enjoyed reading other peoples' interpretations. V1 appeals for its more abstract nature. For once, I agree with Mick, glad you didn't sweet away the debris before shooting.

Two grand studies Annette, after reading your title I've now got visions of Mikbee dressed as Rocky Balboa running through the streets doing some endurance training carrying some rusty chains or pipes on his back!WinkGrin Rusty Balboa! LOL
