It's got that wonderful vintage texture to it - hope it still floats!

Excellent shot! It looks great against that old wall.

Maybe better days for utility, but not for being a subject for a good photographer.

Fascinating photo subject and hung in a perfect spot. It makes a great image, but I wouldn't want ot have to depend on it to save my life....

But it still can be admired due to your photo! It compliments very well the type of wall behind.
