Nicely captured.

Excellent rusty capture Mick, a lot of your images remind me of the time I worked in the Central Engineering Shops at the Ebbw Vale Steelworks,
4 Oct 2012 11:46PM
Oh well found, Mick! Like how you've done this - ALMOST symmetrical too! Bet you got a few shots here with the 'wheels' etc ?? Wink That IS rust - and the pebbles so clean and pristine - a real contrast!GrinGrin

Are you sure this went off the rails first?
My husband likes Jam Swiss Roll too and complains that they're not what they used to be!
I have made some in my time but photography took over!

I see you are favouring the Minolta at present, Mick: excellent detail and textures captured in this unusual artefact.

pristine rust here although it looks a bit derailed Smile
BTW..I told Mr Nadaud where his dad's key comes from, he split sides and said he'll tell his dad in the care home later on what he found in the garden, that will sure cheer the old chap up.

Love the near symmetry here and the lovely textures, but how disappointing for you to have found something that beat you in the going off the rails race.

That's a hefty piece of rusty metal ~ another fine abstract.

A great rusting relic, one which certainly lends its self to a great abstract.

"I am certainly warming to rust, maybe its that old soft spot inside?"

The day might come when you will appreciate the aid of a trolley, Mick. And after all that jam roly poly, it might come sooner not later Wink

An interesting find, even more interesting than a seaside trolley. Otherwise I'd have accused a seagull of nicking the chip out of the pulley wheel Smile

I'm amazed at how many people have picked up on the 'off yer trolley' bit. Were they Links drinkers back in the 'Eighties as well? Wink

Off your trolley, off the rails, off your rocket, but not off the jam roly-polyTongue Did you try biting this in some demented state, believing it to be a slice of jam-filled delight?

A nice symmetry to this one and plenty of great detail as well.
As to the title -- something we've long suspected. :-o
