This week Hugh’s Photo Challenge is looking for images that portray Rust.
In a post I did a few weeks ago I included some images of a unique architectural feature in Montreal: our outdoor spiral iron staircases.
They are lovely to look at indeed, but not only are they treacherous when covered in snow and ice, but they are a pain in the backside (and the wallet) to maintain.
Here’s a good example of what happens when they don’t get that regular fresh coat of paint needed to protect the iron from the elements:
Lord knows how or why the owner would have let this get so bad, but they are now going to have replace a very expensive set of stairs.
Thanks for looking 🙂
