Rust & grot

By fificat100
Have decided to replace my dead camera with a used E30 body - if I can find a decent one!In the meantime, in desperation!, I've dusted off my somewhat ancient, battery-gobbling Minolta. Took it out yesterday to hunt for a few shots.
Took this one at an angle and gave a slight colour tweak in Pshop to try make it a bit more interesting! Thank you for looking.
Regards, Lavina.
