A little bit of rust and a little bit of my favourite colour red.
Although I do take life in the slow lane nowadays,I still travelled 50 miles to Glasgow to get this shot.Although it did take us considerably less than 10 hours to get there by car !!

Fair point by Herman, don't think my speedo would register anything that slow. Slow enough for your car to start oxidising I should think, Mick.

The grey bit reminds me of the conning tower of a submarine, Mick. But I didn't expect to see a submarine, even a rusty one, in the middle of Glasgow.
Interesting comparison between the metal and the distant breeze block - but not a padlock in sight.
I have some rusty pictures scheduled for next week; no submarines involved, though.

Bill

I bet the only sub you are interested in is from that sandwich shop howeve ralthough these are unlikely subjects somehow the image seems to be well balanced (unlike some people on this sit). Keep at it and keep on improving.

I have a wonderful car that is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Men in their big fast cars only see a little green car with a little old biddy driving! Wrong!! I can give them a run for their money and if they try to tailgate me I can leave them standing and frequently do! 5mph - is that really a speedWink PS I have never been caught for speeding, too small and too fastWink
Brilliant rust, so that's what happens if you dawdleWink

The light is good and the lovely bits of rust show that in five years time if you go back to take the shot you'll get an award from the rust society...
