  9. The poor rusty, leaky bucket…is now famous and is being seen everywhere! 🙂

  10. Love it! Isn’t it a beauty? You just have to look at things the right way – best through a macro lense.

  11. Now serves the purpose of growing more beautiful with age, after a lifetime of service! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. x

  12. Great find and shot. Looks dramatic 🙂

  13. Great shot and I love your haiku!

  14. such beauty in the passing of time – that which we hold with such reverence fades away and we are left with its essence : love

  15. Great find! I’m sure it has a lot of stories to tell.

    My blues are here and here.

  16. Thanks for sharing your blues. That bucket has lived a long, happy life. Maybe it’s ready to turn into a plant container.

    Happy Blue Monday.

  17. Awesome find. I like to bring it home and make it a flower planter. ^_^


  18. Poor bucket:( I am sure it was once been so useful to its owner.

    Visiting from Blue Monday- hope you can stop by..


  19. Really lovely picture. Nice find!

  20. Battered and leaky with a lot of character!! Love it…

  21. I’m thinking that this bucket is a metaphor for human life. Most of us get pretty beat up along the way. In the end, we don’t look too pretty, and we may even leak a little! 🙂

  22. Great ,interesting Pic!
