Rust


A bit more rust from Patton's Corner.  Look at all those uncovered gears and chains...when I see this I wonder how many accidents happened...how many fingers were lost in repair work...trying to do stuff quickly without stopping.

The picture imagines an interesting scheme of the work of internal cogs in our body helps to understand how we are both complicated and beautiful at the same time.

There certainly weren't the safety covers that machinery has today. Of course, maybe back then MOST people were smart enough to keep their fingers out of the machine.

I shudder to think of it. :(

Yes, people may mock Health & Safety legislation but it's better to have all your digits. I love the textures and colour of rusty metal, though it's getting harder and harder to find such items around here - at one time every farmyard track was overflowing with it.

I know exactly what you are talking about--- about 40 years ago I lost an argument to a lawn mower! It taught me to be much more careful-- and that's useful now. Stay well.

There is something about rust that just makes for a wonderful photo. I never considered the danger that might have been involved with this but now that you mention it I can see that would have been a great possibility.

İşlemeyen her şey paslanır. En güzel örnek bence.

Sandra said...

Steven said...

Back then, I think there was more common sense. Maybe not.

Interesting looks rust picture!

Ruth Hiebert said...

That does look dangerous .

harry said...

my first wonder is who could dream up the complex gearing and drives; my second thought is who could keep something like that working; and my thirs is yours- how many fingers were lost.

The Furry Gnome said...

That's a lotta rust!

ElaineH said...

You are right. It is hard to imagine. It looks like it would be easy to get a finger caught in there.

Kodak said...

Nice color and texture. It does look like it could cause some accidents.

I have to say that there is something about rust that seems to make for a wonderful photograph … perhaps it's the colour … I'm not sure!

All the best Jan
