Like the previous post, this photograph was taken in Madeira. On the water’s edge near our apartment was a disused sugar mill, within which were a couple of machines which had completely rusted. I really liked the huge gears and, though I found the state of abandonment quite sad, there was a certain beauty to the rust. It’s no surprise that industrial decay is such a popular photographic subject with its “found” beauty and sense of nature undoing “what civilisation has hath wrought”.
This is also an appropriate image to post at the same time as I release a bit of an overhaul of the machinery that runs this blog. It now adjusts well to a wide range of physical displays (technically, known as “responsive”) and I’ve simplified the way comments and the image description are accessed. If you have several devices with different screen sizes, please visit the blog on each and let me know if anything seems untoward.
