Hugh’s Photo Challenge Week 11:Rust

Hugh over at Hugh Views and News is a delightful blogger who, among other things, has a weekly photo challenge which I don’t expect to ever win but a few days ago on my way home from the dentist’s I ran across this scene.


A wheelbarrow which these days is more decorative than utilitarian. It rested outside in the rain against my neighbor’s fence.  I’ve often wondered why it hasn’t been stolen like so many decorative yard art pieces in our neighborhood. Maybe it weighs a ton!

Funny thing how rust, which often renders an object useless, can also make it a work of art.  If only, as we aged and rusted, we were viewed as a works of art and not useless!

To all my friends of a certain age, I see you as works of art.

Here is Hugh’s challenge.
