Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

I wish I knew why exactly I liked the appearance of rust, but I do. And I take a lot of Rust related photos, sorry. Actually not sorry, I have been anticipating this week all year. My favourite selection from just this year.

These taken on my wander through Cropton.

The next ones at Combe Mill, in the Spring.

This one last week in the Bradford industrial museum

But my favourite one of all this year was taken on holiday in Parga, Greece

And if you check out my co-conspirators photo for this prompt, well I don’t think you will have a surprise.. Rusty Trucks Rule

Please leave a link to your rust inspired pictures over at Wild Daffodil or below in the comments.

Next weeks prompt is Regal. The week runs Tuesday to Tuesday.

Happy Snapping!

  1. A wonderful collection of rusty items , very creatively selected Cathy. I have been in the mountains after wildflowers last week so sorry for my late RUST at https://haikuhound.wordpress.com/2017/10/14/rusting-away/

    Rust is great! The multilayered veneer of a life well lived, I say! I enjoy taking pictures of rusty things, too, and I love yours, nanacathy. Here’s my entry for this week: https://gillyflowerfaire.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/rusted/.

  3. […] check out nanacathydotcom and Wild Daffodil for more rusty […]

  4. Great pics, but yup the truck stood out for me too as my favourite!

  5. OOH what an array of rustiness ๐Ÿ˜Š

  6. You have some awesome rust there!

  7. Great rust shots Cathy

    It is indeed a fine collection.

  9. […] more than Cathy at Nanacathy I seem to have a bit of a fascination with rusty objects. Wonder what that says about […]

  10. That’s a great collection – I enjoy making rust-like texture and colour when I’m making cards for blokes and sometimes when I’m painting……..

  11. Nice collection and a interesting fetish ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Great photos!

  13. More beautiful photos! Rust certainly has a certain amount of elegance and I think makes objects more interesting!

  14. You’re definitely not alone in your lust for rust.

  15. Not sure I am as fond of photographing rust. So I may find this week’s difficult.

  16. Wow, these photos are amazing!

  17. What a grand collection! Rusty Trucks – a category in themsleves! I too just love rust and have been photographing it for years – is it the colour, texture, history of the object – all three probably.
    Flaking paint – that’s another thing I’m always photographing

    • green flaking paint has to be the best. I am so glad I “know” you, you understand, something the family never does, when it comes to rust and flaking paint!

      • My family too! They look at me sideways – luckily i’m old enough now to be considered eccentric and harmless!!! Ha! ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Really looking forward to meeting up one day!
