No Rest for the Rusty by AuntDot

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/100s, f/4.0, ISO 100,focal length 4.5mm; AUTO setting
I found this rusty decayed piece of metal with nut/bolt in the center on an aged wooden wall in Cedar Key, Florida, USA. It was still doing its job holding things together.

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.

    Terrific find, Dot – sort of reminds me of a sombrero! Love the colors and textures!

  • I thought of that, too, Monnie, but I wasn’t sure about naming it something like that. Thanks. We do think alike!
