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…..

Not exactly a bit,... that sure is heavy duty plumbing. You arranged things very well. Rust can look so good when well composed. TG

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'.

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

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 Wink
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 Smile

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 timeSmile

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. Smile

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

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.
