I was walking along an old decrepit mill when I realized that there was a certain appeal to all the old rusted metal. From texture to color it gave a totally new take on everyday common metal objects. The older the item, the longer it corroded, the greater it looked.
It inspired me to start a new photography project based entirely on rust. Above is one of the first images captured on this historical site. A basic link in a rusted old fence.
Just about any piece of metal hardware you find on an old abandoned structure is bound to show signs of rust. Of course if you’re searching in the middle of the Mojave Desert, rust might make itself a little scarce.
Old Crab Shacks are no match for mother Nature and offer tremendous opportunities to photograph a piece of history. From the tiniest nail to the entire shack the possibilities for photographing rust are endless.
You often don’t have to look too far to find rust. It can be as simple as an old screw in a wooden fence.
So start your search, let your imagination go wild and get creative bringing us all those rusted old pictures.

A pet peeve of mine is litter, especially in our natural habitats. It seems that no matter where we go litter is more and more apparent. From fast food wrappers to paper cups and empty containers of alcohol, littered areas seem easier to find than a nice pristine area.
This bottle of Jack Daniel’s found early morning in a nature park was photographed with some amount of back lighting to enhance the glass container…
At times wildlife can interact with our litter as a source of food. This may provide some amusing images as in this squirrel appearing to be drinking from a cup of coffee.
Litter can turn into a dangerous hazard. A broken glass container can present a serious risk of injury to people pets and wildlife.
This 6 pack holder may seem harmless. Did you know it’s one of the biggest threats for young mammals such as Fox kits and marine birds. The young ones get trapped in a ring and slowly suffocate as they grow…
We hear more and more about the accumulation of masses of plastic objects polluting our oceans. Plastic water bottles are an easy and convenient way to carry our water. Unfortunately they also seem to be the most apparent form of plastic littler along our forests, lakes, rivers and oceans.
I’m sure you won’t be short of subjects to photograph. As always post your best shot and share with the Photo Challenge Community. Participating in the 2013 Photo Challenge is fun and easy. Post and share your images with the Photo Challenge Community on Google+, Facebook,or Flickr.
