Oh well found, Mick! Like how you've done this - ALMOST symmetrical too! Bet you got a few shots here with the 'wheels' etc ?? Wink That IS rust - and the pebbles so clean and pristine - a real contrast!GrinGrin

Are you sure this went off the rails first?

pristine rust here although it looks a bit derailed Smile
BTW..I told Mr Nadaud where his dad's key comes from, he split sides and said he'll tell his dad in the care home later on what he found in the garden, that will sure cheer the old chap up.

Love the near symmetry here and the lovely textures, but how disappointing for you to have found something that beat you in the going off the rails race.

The day might come when you will appreciate the aid of a trolley, Mick. And after all that jam roly poly, it might come sooner not later Wink

An interesting find, even more interesting than a seaside trolley. Otherwise I'd have accused a seagull of nicking the chip out of the pulley wheel Smile
