First of all I wish to thank Robin (RobinF) for his U.A. on yesterday's image - much appreciated.
I had intended to post the colour original of Armstrong's Oilcan today. Since receiving one hell of a wigging from the Rustmeister himself, for thoughtlessly breaking Rule 6, paragraph 4c of the RAS handbook (THOU SHALT NOT UPLOAD OIL IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM !!), I have thought better of that intention, decided to mend my ways and am uploading this instead.
Alongside the colliery railway sidings at Beamish Museum, among a stash of part-complete boilers from narrow-gauge steam railway engines, old cranes and assorted historical industrial iron and steel artefacts that have spent more years on the scrapheap than I have had pints of Guinness, lies this pair of simple metal containers once used for I know not what. In fact I was chasing shadows last Monday afternoon, preparing for the onset of Shadow Saturdays (which will replace the long-abandoned theme of Pub Signs in September) and only realised later how useful a file of pre-prepared rust could be!
Please note that there is some unidentifiable debris at the bottom of one of the containers; this is in accordance with Rule 1, Paragraph 1 - THOU SHALT NOT CLONE OUT THE GROT.
I assume that in spite of Rule 6, paragraph 4c (quoted above) it is still permissible for the photographer (or in certain specialised photographic genres the model) to be well-oiled . . .
