Huge old chains, likely maritime castoffs, edge a parking area near the lighthouse at Point Vicente on the Palos Verdes Peninsula (California, USA). Once upon a time they were no doubt gleaming with white paint, but they are so much more interesting now in their rusted state!

    Like pythons entwined! Not beautiful (to me) but certainly interesting!

  • Bette, I like your comparison to pythons, very apt. This is more about forms and textures than conventional beauty, so I have no problem with your reaction.
