Gutter Balls


I encountered these perfectly spherical iron balls in a street gutter while walking around my neighborhood. Some of them have rusted in slightly different colors, and when I picked one up, it felt solid. Old bearings from industrial machinery? Conceptual art? This is just as I found them. The crushed aluminum can provides scale.

They look so artistic! You must have sharp eyes to have spotted them sitting there.

You find the most unusual things! This is quite artsy! I like the way the sharp edges of the can contrast! Excellent shot!

I love finding things like this. Did you pick them up and take them home? I would have.

Mo, I took this photo last week, and when I walked by there this week, the balls were gone. So I didn't take them, but somebody did. I almost didn't post this, but that decided the matter for me.

First of all, LOVE your title. :)

Secondly, what a neat thing to find! If it wasn't art before, it is now that it's on your blog. :D
