Rusting Toys

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 19 December 2014 in Miscellaneous.

Old trike and wagon left to rust. It seems like with a little paint, they could be restored and would make some child very happy.

Gently recycling into rust, it has a beauty of its own, but nevertheless a sad reflection on our throw away society. Well captured

A sad but well seen frame, Elaine ......... Excellently presented.
A sign of our times ..... We asked for repair of our four yr old Copier - answer --- a new one would be cheaper - throw it out !!!!!!!!!
Kindest regards and a nice weekend Monika

I think rust must be nature's way of reclaiming metal junk. In this case the objects are toys which gives them a sentimental quality. Fine shot.
