…with anyone else but me! Abstract of rust and peeling/bubbling paint on a dumpster in Dunnellon, Florida. I couldn’t help thinking of an apple tree when I saw this, and then the song came into my head, so that clinched the title.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    I think RUSTOLOGY is a good name for what we do :o) or RUSTOGRAPHY ah that’s more like it yep that’s the one…

  • I like RUSTOGRAPHY! Maybe RUSTOLOGY is the study of RUSTOGRAPHY……that was we can use them both! LOL I think we all need a rest…..
