Rusted Frame

During my recent walk through Balls Head Reserve I planned on taking my friend from there to Milsons Point via the coastline. Unfortunately the path is now blocked off around Sawmiller’s Reserve (though I might be remembering the pathway incorrectly) so we finished our walk sooner than I’d anticipated.

Here’s part of the frame of what remains of an old boat as seen at Sawmiller’s Reserve, a reserve quite close to Balls Head Reserve.

I quite like the contrast between the water and the frame. The frame looks quite harsh due to experiencing weathering over a long period of time. It seems less inviting than the water. It also has a lot more detail in it due to lacking a general smoothness, unlike the water.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-seventeenth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “A Photo Walk“.

I’m submitting this photo as it was taken during a walk where I was taking a number of photos. If I hadn’t shared photos of Balls Head Reserve and its surrounds prior to this one, I imagine I would’ve included more here.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

Amy is hosting this challenge. Anne Leueen of Horse Addict is guest-hosting next week’s.

I recommend checking out how people are interpreting the challenges. I also recommend joining in. It’s a growing, fun community.

I hope you enjoy.
