Rust And Ice Drops
Before I joined the legacy chain, I was on another platform. It wasn't a crypto based platform, neither a blockchain, which is why one day, or night the platform went dark and gone was forever. I met a lot of good people there, a lot of them are on Hive today.
Unfortunately I can't recall the name of the photographer, but there was someone posting rust photos and there was even a tag, like #rustart. For me it was all new, but interesting and exciting as well. I've never thought rust can be interesting yet, there was the guy demonstrating us that rust can look like art. From that point, I started to pay attention to rust and whenever I saw something interesting, took some photos to see how it looks. Rust is basically art by nature, just in a different way.
Today I had to go shopping and as the shop I wanted to visit is at about one and a half kilometer distance from where I live, on my way there I had the chance to look at the details on the streets. The weather was nice, it was actually 0°C, so I wasn't in a hurry.
At one point I was passing by some old houses and spotted a gate, that was a bit rusty at one end. I don't like to photograph gates and doors, although I love both, because you never know who's watching, where is the hidden camera and you get in trouble in a split second. But this looked like an abandoned house, so I took a chance.
I bet most of you may wonder what the hell I see in this as it's just old rust, nothing interesting. Obviously not every rusty piece is the same, some may look better, others are just plain boring. My favorite is rusty locks and chains, but today I'm bringing you this plain surface, part of a gate, tried by time, as you can see.
Let's pretend for a minute, that this is not a gate, but a painting done by a famous artist. How many artists are creating abstract art, that looks something similar. Have you ever seen any? I have. Obviously the texture and the surface is different, but the overall look is something similar.
As you can see, you can't hide anything from nature. The top layer paint is pealing off, the one beneath is also greatly affected.
Next time I'm going to take some macro shuts, if I can. Just need to find a secluded place and a quiet day. Today people were looking at me like I was crazy. Not many can understand what I see, but that's ok. I was one of them years ago :)
The next thing I saw was this beauty. At first I thought it's a raindrop, or a drop of water as the morning was a bit gloomy, foggy, but it wasn't a drop of water, but a drop of ice.
Here, I cropped the photo to get a closer look. You can see it's ice as water doesn't look like that. A raindrop would be clean and transparent.
This one even has some air bubbles in it. (Should have taken a better macro though.) To be honest, I've never seen anything like this. I mean I've seen icicles, but not drops that contain air bubbles. I guess there's a first for everything.
I'm curious to see if there will be someone who likes rust :)

You know I m a fan of your photography. Hardly anyone likes rust. But the artistic way you have taken the pictures is awesome. And it's nice to see that rusted things can be served like that too.
I didn't know you're a fan but I'm glad to hear that. I've sold a few things with rusty photos on a print on demand platform, so there are people who like rust.
I love buying things with a used and rusty effect like photo frames, keychain holders, and mirror frames, and mixing it with the industrial style that is very trendy, and it is a clean job where the stone color predominates a lot.
that drop of ice with air inside has the same effect that happens with the ice cubes in my freezer, I think the air is left by the speed of how the water rushes before freezing is great very nice photos thank you very much, Erika.
You're right, things will rusty look are popular these days.
Thank you very much @janitzearratia. Have a nice weekend.
I am not a fan of rust, but it is certainly a fact of life. The ice drop at the end looks really cool, though. I wish you'd gotten a closer shot of it. I'm sure the macro version would be more impressive.
This is a macro 😀
Lol I thought you can took a closer one, sorry XD
This was so tiny, most of the people would not even notice :)
Got it better right now. It's a macro of a raindrop for sure. It can't be soo big haha
I don't want rust on my car anymore. Your pictures look like being taken of my green van last year... But you're right, it can be beautiful to look at.
A rusty car is a pain, so I can understand. I'm going to hunt for some nice rust photos.
I can't say I like rust, per se. But I do like that you exposed me to another new perspective! That I !LUV !! 🙏Seeing rust as art - I think you just opened up my world a wee bit more, my love!
Meanwhile, I adore the icicle you captured! Yes to more of that!
And glad it was a nice, warm 0'c for you! !LOL 😂

I'm glad you see it that way. Rust is art in my eyes.
I hope I'll be able to bring you more. And it was indeed a nice warm 0°C weather :)
Hello @erikah, as a person dedicated to manual arts, I appreciate all kinds of art, when I go out I admire much of what surrounds me and most of all street art, but wouuu, I think it's great that you see everything as art, and know how to appreciate everything that is in your way.
How interesting what you show us and I am sure that from now on I will also look at that kind of things, rusty objects, ice drops, how wonderful.
You are an art lover, there is no doubt about that. It was nice to visit your post.
Greetings, have a nice weekend... ✨
Hive is great this way as you get to learn something new every day if you pay attention and are open to experience new things. Rust is not an usual art, but I'm glad you like it.
