Another picture from today’s trip to Huntingdons various industrial parks. This time this was found on the side of a container the kind you find floating in from China. Lots of scratch marks that looked like brush strokes to me.


red, rust, rusty, damaged is where it is at.

    Oh beautiful color..this is so cool and you know you could turn it any way and it would look great!!

  • Hey never thought of that – this was just how it was one of the stantions on the side of the container. I could just imagine how much this has traveled.

    Well found, colours are so rich.

  • Yeah I was driving around all the industrial parks I could find in Huntingdon with some odd looks at times walking up to old containers and skips with a camera in hand :)
