No chance that crane gets nicked!
but someone tried to undo the left bolt.

well spotted, Mr Rust eagle eye!

The crane may still be working Mick, but it'll take more than a squirt of WD40 to get these nuts and bolts moving! Well spotted, and a nic ecomposition.

Another good one Mick, even the daubed blue paint has taken on the rust…
Oh my, where do we dig this 'Pollies' up from??…… They won't have to work that long.
Ask them to give up there 'Super" payments for the tax payers that have put them there.
Cut out the benifits to those who bludge. For those who want a big family then get a job.
For those who want tattoo's and piecings then get a job.
For those who have defended their country give them the praise and benifits.
I could stand on my saop box for ever as the government here too has plunged us into huge debt..
but we are allowed to retire before 70.

Apparently that crane is still used to this day to lift Aggie off the ground on Saturday nights. I wonder why one has been unscrewed but no matter it helps to break up the pattern. This one is a cracker Mick.

Blue paint is used to preserve the rust beneath in good condition until you come along and photograph it. Of course.
A nice natural diptych. Sometimes up, sometimes down.
