FSO - Rust, rusty, rustic, Take 2

If I were really annoyed with myself for posting this week's FSO on Monday, I wouldn't have another go at it.   But I've got used to being annoyed with myself for stuffing things up and don't let it bother me too much these days.  However, I did have to dig into my archives on my old computer to find a few more shots, and none of them are taken around here.  They are all in the north and not that far away though.

This one amused me because the For Hire sign looks to be in much better condition than the machine.  Maybe it's only rusty on the outside but it doesn't exactly inspire confidence, does it?

Take your pick of go-carts:

Add a few rusty old things to achieve a really rustic look:

Finally, because I love looking at rusty old sheds, I just had to add one. 

Want to have a look at some great photos of rust, rusty and rustic?  Just pop over here.

  5. Gosh - two posts for the price of one this week. We call that a BOGOFF here (Buy one get one free!). No doubt GB can tell me if it's called the same with you.

    Those go-carts took me back. I had one just like it. Must find a photo and post it one day.

  6. You have a real eye for the subject on FSO I must say. As for stuffing things up I know better, you are definitely not a stuffer-upper. You are also so much more observant than I am. I didn't recall the rusty bits on the outside of the Wairere Boulders information shed although it was a really memorable place. Must 'do' the rest of the walk sometime.

  7. I bet the boy and his Dad had a lot of fun building the white go cart and winning. What a lot of great memories. Pity Dads and children don't do this anymore. including my husband.

  8. I hope they don't charge too much rent to hire that machine out. Got me laughing all the way! And I'll bet the go-carts were fun.

  10. I see a lot the same things around here. Great captures.

    (And no, that sign above the machinery does not inspire confidence. ::snort::)

  13. Well, I dunno...sometimes rusty old equipment works pretty good (this is coming from a 61-year-old!!)

  14. I'm thinking some old equipment might work better than the new. :) I bet those go-carts were (and may still be) lots of fun.

  18. Rust can be fascinating, sometimes it's a thin line between an eyesore and a piece of art.
