Rubbish Tuesday

It's been a while since I took part in Roan's Rubbish Tuesday although I mean to every week time just seems to get away with me.


So, what's Rubbish Tuesday about?

Well, as Roan says:

'My idea was to have a place to post 'old things'.  Anything old and/or deteriorating such as old houses, barns, outbuildings, old cars, rusty things, antiques, interesting junk, or it can be something in pristine condition, but just old. 

1. Link to a post featuring photos of something old.
2. Link back to Rubbish by Roan in your post.
3. As time allows, visit other participants and comment on their posts.'

Most of my post have been on a small scale compared to many who take part and many of them have been of things on and around the farm where I spend much of my time.

There is an old enamel bath which I featured in one of my previous posts, it sits half hidden at the end of the barn catching rain water for use in the vegetable garden and years of exposure have left a myriad of beautiful colours and rust patterns on it's surface.

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago of a tin with some paint brushes in it left on the side of the bath because to me the colours and textures seemed to compliment each other perfectly.

I have played with the photo just a little giving it a slight bloom. It doesn't change the basic colours but I think enhances the depth slightly, I hope you like it as much as I do.

yes, yes it's lovely, very arty and all but I'll have money you were supposed to be doing a job (LIKE PAINTING) and you were darting around taking photos instead of PAINTING.

Great! So original and neat.

Looks like my paint brushes...I guess I'm too lazy the clean them properly. Tom The Backroads Traveller

Love the idea of catching rainwater in the tub.

There isn't one thing NOT to like about this picture. Color, texture, and old...it has a bit of everything!

Great colours - I love the brightness of the rust and paint against the muted brick and stone wall.
