Rusty Roos! by Staffaholic


Small (22.3" x 16.4")

Available to buy on…

These beautiful Kangaroos stand proud and tall in the new housing estate close to where we live.

They are actually made of wrought iron and then ‘rusted’ to give a very worn appearance, even though they are very new!

They make for fine viewing, I find them an interesting piece of art work.

Many people stop, stare, then finally approach and touch, they get an awful surprise when they find out that they are in fact a ‘new’ piece of art.

Taken in ‘Bunya’, Sydney, New South Wales.

Greetings All, I am a survivor. I see life through a very unique filter these days. Every moment, every insignificant event matters. I use a Canon 500D with a variety of different lenses. I adore dogs. I am a staunch advocate of the much maligned ‘underdog’, both in the canine world and also outside of it. The world is full of beauty – this I know. Happy snapping fellow travellers.

    Oh how darling and uniquely Australian! Great find my friend!

  • Yes Leigh, they are very uniquely Australian, you coined it perfectly. I think they are different, but effective.

  • Thanks Gabrielle, it’s certainly a very ‘Aussie’ type of thing that’s for sure! :)
