Sunday Stills: Metal

This weeks Sunday Stills challenge is: Metal.
It was a broad subject, but the challenge was to photograph metal in a form that might not be photographed by others.
I had planed to do more work on this this weekend, as we've had one hell of a week, running our tires off! But then yesterday, the day that things finally cooled off a little and I was going to have time and energy to get creative, we broke down in the desert and that pretty much wiped out my motivation and energy for anything. For the scoop on the breakdown that has left us stranded in Saint George, UT for at least 5 days, check out the post after this one.
In the mean time, I ended up using what I had. These are grain bins, something we see a lot of in our line of trucking. I love grain bins and grain elevators. I always see them as works of art and beauty. (almost always, but there are exceptions)

Grai bins and old elevators draw me too. Old elevators can be imagined to have lots of history. Like these photos!
