Tin Cans and Rust! (photo Friday)

Time's corrosive dewdrop eats


     The giant warrior to a crust


     Of earth in earth and rust in rust.


                      Francis Turner Palgrave




Like all good things in life






there comes a time






where they are no longer needed.






They are packed up and put on a shelf






and replaced by something new






something different. They may return.






This will be my final






 Photo Friday.






It has been a pleasure to share but






to everything there comes a time. Thank you.




Later

you do know that if the American Pickers come by and see those cans, they will be offering you money for them!!

Don't watch Canadian Pickers, so not sure what they like.....

Hey Gill and Jill (that would make a good song) these are not my cans I seen them at an auction and loved them. They were full of nails, nuts and bolts there was so many of them it was very cool. B

Your photos are so well done! But I understand not wanting the obligation of having to post a specific. Just, please, don't go away altogether!

Thanks for your kind comments! I ended up going all the way back to the end of September, and I enjoyed the photos very much! I have to admit that I do not read a lot of the words, but you have lots of photos, so I will be coming back!!
You are somewhere in my neck of the woods! I am in Kanata, the western part of Ottawa.

I'll trade you a riddle for that great poem....nice pictures.:)

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

- Tolkien
