Back to the National Slate Museum for this post, home of the cobwebbed window on my earlier post. This entire floor of the museum was full of rusting items used in the heyday of the slate production. They also produced many of their own tools and moulds to make them. It must have been quite a self-sufficient industry
A somehow atmospheric collection of old cans - caught in wonderful light conditions and coherent surroundings. I like this picture very much.
However, is this grunge? Old, discarded and still ready for use utensils mustn't automatically be grunge ... ;-)
Greetings from very autumnal Germany! Have a nice week!
Ahh good to see a new post from you. A very attractive display of these rusty items. I like that the drawer is half open, it kind of looks if someone was just there searching for a tool. Some of the pieces can also look cool in modern homes as a contrast to the new stuff. A very well composed image with an attractive pp.
I look at all of these rusty oil cans, coffee pot, and liquid transport devices as a strong look to the past when everything lacked a digital footprint. With the brown cabinet and browns in the BG I first thought of a sepia print but then I noticed a touch of color on the left. This museum must have been interesting but a bit on the grim side with the living and working conditions.
A good one for the ToM. back in the days, these are useful items of daily life tools and equipment. I can see our telephone and old black and white TV display in some museum like this one day :) or some of our old bulky monitors and such....
Good shot with good texture and details of the rusty materials.
