  • An Icon

    Can you make a picture out of anything?

    Well, here's a standard design icon. The farm has a couple and I managed to catch them together for a change.



    The story behind the Jerry Can is well documented. They are such a standard design that we overlook them in day to day life.

    Can they be a thing of beauty though?

    Sorry. I'm rambling. I haven't had my cocoa.
    Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.

    The rest of us mere mortals simply look and learn.

      Yes, definitely. And the rust adds to the beauty in my opinion. Great shot!

        I do think you can make a picture out of anything but it may not appeal to all. Having handled hundreds of these full of Civgas or Kero I would like to have seen them from a different perspective - perhaps beaten up and on the scrap heap!
