    Interesting shots — I never thought of taking pictures of rusty things, but these ones you took are kind of cool :-) This is probably going to sound really weird, but the first one makes me think of a chocolate cupcake!!

    I just got a brand new Nikon D60 camera yesterday — I can’t wait to get home any try it out!!

    Ugh, sorry about the previous post – I sometimes have issues with my son’s laptop that he is so kind to allow me to use :)

    …I knew this would have great photos of rusty things. Love it! Great shots – great quote to introduce it.
