I know these photos are far from perfect: there's often distracting stuff in the background, and some of the angles are so wonky it's distracting.
But I like the rust, and all the textures and colors. I love the frayed rope, and the aging knots, and the light of the early afternoon.
More than anything, that's why I like taking pictures. Because I like them. I may not win any awards, or illustrate any semblance of expertise, but I still like what I've captured here.
