There's something I love about cogs on old machinery - and when they're rusty... well, I love the patina and the pattern and the sense of venerable age. This was a pic I shot for my 'Rust' monthly photography theme but I decided it was an 'also-ran'. My viewpoint was, I think, just a bit too high.
Retained as a sculptural reminder of the buildings' industrial and textile heritage, the weaving loom is slowly oxidising outside the Victoria Mills complex (see also here). I wonder how long it will last before it all falls to bits? (Longer than I will, I'll bet!)
