Someone at my club told me about a mine on the outskirts of Edinburgh that closed down in the 60's which still had some rusty bits and bobs lying about.
A rusty bit here.(Or perhaps it is a rusty bob !!)
Dont know if its a bit or a bob Mick but it looks like its attached to a lancashire boiler front plate.
Nice one. And I love the little cobweb too!
Well it's a bit of a big bob and a rusty one at that, great shot Mick
A big BIT and a big BOB,,wonder what it helped pump,,nice detail and colour Mick,,
Glad I don't have to unbolt those flanges Mick,
excellent detail captured,
A big bit???????????? GIANT I will say, Mick!!!!!!! Ania
Either way it has made an interesting capture even to the cobweb……..
Hope you enjoyed your mac/cheese. You're mentioning it gave me the
idea for tea also but we haven't had it in ages…..
Good bits and bobs, still in pretty good shape--- a wonderful find!
Not exactly a bit,... that sure is heavy duty plumbing. You arranged things very well. Rust can look so good when well composed. TG
A beautiful light and colours ,Mick -excellent shot....
Mick, Please send me a PM, giving me the reason why so many members including your good self are fascinated by 'RUST'. I feel is if I am out of the 'loop' and in someway, 'lost the blooming plot'.
It's a thingummyjig, surely, and a beautifully shaped and textured one at that.
I am not an expert but I would say that this a pleasing capture expertly showing the detail and texture of an ancient rusty BOB.
I always think of the amont of work that went into making these components now left to nature,nice image
Worth a visit for you then to see this,amd it's a great shot with that little web giving you extra mark
This could be your idea of a gold mine , rust nirvana, Is the Lady Victoria still a working museum ?? I did some work on the winding engine there many years ago
Fantastic bit of rust Mick, great textures and tones, looks like to have found a major source of rust :-0
Lots of detail and texture in this one Mick. Well captured
Doing what you do best Mick.
I rather think a 'bit' is U.S. English for a 'bob', but I'm not switched on to modern terminology these days. Moira will insist that I never was switched on
There are some really nice, stout flanged joints there; I can't imagine the rust causing great devastation for a while yet. Perhaps worthy of an annual report?
Love the web, too
So you are getting your camera club members roped in as well! Nice to see insanity spreading...
Mick don't you think you should have asked Bob first before taking this image? He must have been quite a big chap for this rust chunk to be left lying around, or perhaps he is just a little chap and the chunk was too heavy and by the look of those cobwebs it has been neglected for some time
Bits & bobs good job it's not Bob's Bits instead! then you would need his permission ha ha ha, you can trust in rust, like it nice one! regards Leon.
Nothing a bit of WD40 and a large ring spanner won't shift
Didn't something rather unfortunate happen to Bobbitt
A 'nuts and bolts' rust image here, Mick.
I like this one alot Mike, nice compposition and rust textures, the perfect subject.
Or maybe they're Bob's bits.
Looks like a bob up top with a bit below. And a curving row of blibbles on the left.
I think it's a bob! But I suppose it depends where you come from.... Bit or bit, it's a great shot, Mick
It's a fair old lump Mick, and if it where down this part of the World, it would've been in the Scrap yard by now.
Rust is in your blood, and it's catching, Me for one I'm hooked line and sinker, nice colour bonus is the web
Mick, nice comp and layout, strong detail and as always great tones.
Well you have every rust colour possible here I think
Great textures and nice cobwebs to go with it!
Think I will nip by your pf............ I never find your images naturally, not surprised at this time of night
Definitely a bob as opposed to a bit Mick. I like that web in the middle of the thingymabob! Moira
It's all very well you giving this image the title of 'Bits & Bobs' Mick, but you have to inform us as to which bit is the Bob and which bit is, well.....the bit.
Must try harder. See me. 5/10
Can't join in debate about technicalities,
I just like the curves.
Some wonderful grot, Mick. But then again, I would expect nothing less.
Interesting to read all the comments above, Mick: hope you have managed to convince Nathan that your subjects are a worthwhile pursuit, being good exercises in colour, detail and textures.
Guess this disused mine could be a mine of subjects for you (sorry about that pun).
The flanges on that pipe are enormous, did they make them so big because they had only one size of spanner?
Great rust and I'm looking forward to the bobs.
Now Mick I'm a rusty Bob and thas a rusty bit kep the facts right ,excellent capture mate.
An Icon in photographic circle...Not the rust but you goodself. Keep at it.Nathan will join you soon.
love your rusty bits& bops ...
A great image, well done for finding it
'Superbly rendered macro "RAS" Imagery!' ~ LEx
bit or bob... it is definitely rusty
I think you could get a few bob for this one Mick..Lin
It looks like you have found a real gold mine Mick or should that be rust mine! lol I'm sure you will get plenty more images from this new location.
Excellent compo! Love the spiders webs included.
