It's very appealing, Alexa. Those little white mold blooms make it !
The mold (possibly some sort of lichen?) sets off the hard iron perfectly.
A great b&w composition!Happy Easter to you!
There is something compelling about rusted, corroded iron. Your photo captures that perfectly.
The beauty lies in the fact that nature constantly works to reclaim that which was taken by humans : )
Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
