Hello Friends,
My laptop packed up Sad and I hadn't backed up.Sad So I have had a "trauma" time and the rusty object above just suits my mood!! Bought new laptop (piggy bank now empty) and still trying to get used to a new piece of equipment. Will calm myself enjoying your pics over the next few days. Hope you are all well. J.

Because of a certain influence rust and grot has become very popular and we have a good example of the genre here. Long live RAS!!

Bit of a MOT failure I think. I'm learning on my shiny new desk top at the moment, trying to transfer software with licence keys is a pain in the proverbial!!

Never mind Joan just think of all the new stuff you have to go out and take...that wheel looks tired.

A perfect shot for our rustophile club!!Grin
Trust you are on good terms with your new laptop by now! That was a huge calamity for you. Sad It happened to me too, not long ago and left me in tears! Luckily I have a computer expert friend who took days to rescue everything from the 'dead' drive and put them on to an external for me - and saved my sanity! Result was a very empty purse, a neat new powerful tower, a couple extra externals and a couple of days learning the new Windows 7.!!
Motto:- ALWAYS keep a back up.

Excellent detail in the rust- it's interesting to see how the rust has washed out over the tyre.
