What a great title!

Lovely rusty detail here Mick - funny how the bit in the middle of the hook isn't rusty - or is there some technical reason that me, a mere female, wouldn't even think about I wonder.

Love the rust, Mick! There is some construction going on next door and I wanted to take some Mick-like rust pictures of the equipment but lost my nerve - they would think I'm crazy! But maybe I'll be brave and try again!

A lovely abstract bit of rustiness - it is interesting how the middle of the hook has remained so new-looking - perhaps your mere presence causes rust, but it hasn't worked it's way to the middle yet?

Like your opening tongue in cheek assessment, Mick: another bit of quality rust, captured in fine detail and colour again.

This is a hanging basket in my garden.I can only guess the reason for the lack of rust in the middle is my wife taking it down for replanting and maintainance and such.The middle bit will get a bit of ''oil'' from the natural oils on her fingers.

Well captured Mike. I agree with Hugh about the title. Reading your comments (as always) your wife must have a wonderful sense of humour. I know, I know, she's married to you Wink Grin

Interesting distribution of rust Mick. i see your point about the unrusty bit getting handled frequently, but thar doesn't account for the the way the rust only affects the top links of the chain.
Never mind all that, it's a cracking shot.

the title says more about you than the image for sure, a great comp Mike, sits well in the frame creating a very interesting image

The background is a bit dominant here nevertheless a fine capture and the title is very apt for both you and the image.

Great image Mick..and love the title!! I actually thought of you today while I was at Long Reef...I saw an old rusty winch and I took a pic of it. Ordinarily I wouldn't of looked twice at it but it looked quite interesting on closer examination lol Smile

Like the title Mick and love the orange colours in the rust.
Regarding the seals, yes there are a lot of little fishing villages in this area so could have been that. Some of the other seals also had blood visible on them - presumed they had been fighting.

You haven't got her mending the car and changing the oil as well surely.....whatever will the lads at the Dockers think?

wont be up much longer Mick ,the bedding is coming to an end.The bit in the middle doesnt have any friction coNtact with other metal parts were the galvanised coating is violated ,the rust then travels under the afformentiond coating and removes it therby leaving the ferrous based metal open to oxidisation (RUST),it will eventually denude the ferrous based metal wich will then be fully rust coated regardless of your wifes oily fingers.Hope this explanes and we can all sleep easy .Tongue.

Even if I have never met you Mick, I have the feeling, I know what you think. I saw the thumbnail and thought... well, he's hooked on rust - Just to find out, this is the title you've given this image! Hey, ho!
