Put to good use ....

This picture was taken on my recent trip to Cullinan, the historical diamond mining "town" which is abundant with things vintage and artists alike. An amazing example of repurposing at work. These old zinc basins were suspended against the fencing and nasturtiums set to grow abundantly around them - creating an interesting contrast of texture, materials and colours. Somehow everthing seems to "look at home".

A good snap showing a good reuse with lot of green around.... Gena...do the zinc basins serve any other purpose by being suspended there other than being decorative...I mean do they strengthen?

Gena,
While posting my comments on this post I thought this snap was familiar to me in someway...and today I spotted it again in a recent post of yours....may be you have reposted it again....

Thanks

Best

Roy

Hi Roy, yes I did repost it as part of the Echo Challenge "Decorate" - it made such an impact on me of amazing repurposing and creativity that I couldn't resist... as the post says. Thx 4 feedback Gena

Roy this is just purely decorative - a perfect example of re-use, repurpose and recycle!!!!
