Not sure I'd want to rely on anything marked like this in a real emergency...

And if you'd like more of me I'm guest blogging today too. Pop over to Style Key West for a discussion on using photography to add color (red and otherwise) to your home.

Something about old peeling paint that attracts an artist.

I liked looking at your photos on the guest post. What a great range of ideas you have.

A great variation of reds. Not sure sure about the efficiency of the fire extinguisher though. Who cares? the Pic is swell like the rest of your works. I do admire the variation in motive choices.

It might not be great in a fire, but it does make a great picture!
I've changed the address on my blog, and it seems to have deleted all comments, on all posts!
Would you let me know if there's a difficulty commenting, please?
At least I still have my feed thing and my followers!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. "Rusty junk always makes for interesting photographs." (Yea, I did say that... just ask my friend Jenny.)

I love the gritty reality of this one, as well as the variety of subjects you posted on the guest spot you did. Great stuff all the way around!

Great shot...rust and peeling paint make fascinating art, and the Hebrew sure adds to the flavor! Happy Ruby Tuesday. :))

simple and yet captivating.

Raven said...

Great shot. Really does make you wonder... I'm sure there's a story there... real or fictional.

Annie said...

Can't help but love this. The old peeling paint and faded sign really calls to me.

Patti said...

The old peeling paint and the tattered sign. I also would not trust any of this in an emergency!

Hope you never have to. Interesting shot, Robin.

Happy belated Ruby Tuesday ~

Think I forgot a verb in my comment. My brain gets tired after working. Yikes.

And I doth call myself a wordsmith. I need to reconsider that.
