These were found in a museum like yard in the former rail hub town of St. Thomas ON in Canada.. I was drawn to their weathered appearance and textures. Taken with a Nikon D50 and 18-55mm DX lens.

    Love this…awesome rust bucket!! Great capture Ron….did you try the Rusty, Crusty & Falling to Bits group? :)

  • Thank you Donna. I’ll have a look at that group and see how far gone the subjects have to be, and then have a look in my files for more suitable subjects. Best wishes, Ron.
