The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #199: Mechanical/Industrial

For this lot of photos I have gone back and found a few old ones and have added a couple of new ones. I chose to use monochrome as I think it adds to the vintage feel of my images.

Start off with some oldies

Here are some new photos never been posted before

A Wheel in the Past

The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Wheel

Many many years ago I built a play platform with a swing and a ladder from poles cut from trees on the property and timber off cuts from the local timber mill. As an added extra, I decided that it needed something extra. Going to the car wreckers, I asked if I could have a steering wheel for the girls play area. The bloke gave me a Mini Cooper steering wheel which was put onto the post.

As you can see there isn’t much of the structure left, the swing chains are still there just a bit rusty, the platform and ladder have gone, probably into another build or firewood but that steering wheel still firmly attached and still spins.190508_blog_challenge_wheel_car_girls_play_durranbah
