I can smell a theme cooking with the similarities between the last few photos I posted. This one was totally by chance and I didn’t intend to keep the contrast theme going but I just happened to open a folder in my archives from this month and this is the first photo I saw. Works for me.
If you ask me why I would take a photo of a rusty bolt on a metal grate, I wouldn’t have an answer for you. I just shoot stuff like this all of the time. Just about anything that catches my eye I tend to snap a pic. And the more rusty and crusty the better. Most shots end up in the forgotten bin because they don’t do anything for me or they may have technical problems. On occasion I go back and take a look and find a few gems that I passed by, but my intuition is usually right the first time. I only really delete photos that are just technically bad or were just test shots for new gear. Once I view the results I pitch ’em.
