Surrounded by Rust

I decided not to post anymore of the New Salem photos as they were all a lot of brown. Just as I was posting this Great Rusty Tuesday pic I realized that it too is a whole lot of brown. Can't seem to get away from the color!

I rode along with my husband to a lettering job out in the country and while he applied the vinyl graphics I circled the semi truck looking for a possible rusty subject. Bingo! I can't tell you what purpose this part serves on a tractor trailer but it gave the little grape hyacinth I took along a place to sit.
this strangely beautiful. I like the pretty flower juxtaposed with the harsh rust

Denise, sometimes our personal preferences for things just comes out as photographers... you are partial to browns and rust colors, I guess! My advice would be don't fight it... use it to create shots like this!! This is way cool. I love the pop of color inside the rusty circle. Very nicely done.

April 16th, 2015  
You're one of those hippie flower childs from long ago, right? The ones that inserted flowers in the barrels of the soldiers rifles? That's what I initially thought this was. Great exercise in contrasts!
April 16th, 2015  
This is beautiful Denise! Love how the blue pops out from the rust! and like your dof!

Wonderful juxtapositions between the rust and the delicate hyacinth! I have been out of commission for professional reasons, so I am just seeing this lovely composition now. Excellent focus, too.

You got me on this one. I thought it was an old canon or gun barrel. Love the contrast of the harsh rusty metal and the delicate blossoms. Beautiful!
April 20th, 2015  
Not sure how I missed this little gem. The blue makes the brown less sad. Great comp too! Fav from me.
April 20th, 2015  
Very nice shot. Brown is becoming the new cool colour in these parts. People are starting to buy brown cars and brown clothes. Not my cup of tea though..... I'm more a black and white with purple accents sort of guy. :)
April 22nd, 2015  
How gorgeous is that!! A perfect composition with that beautiful touch of purple!! Nobody does brown like you!!
