I passed up a lot of attractive rust to focus this shot on the shapes and fit of the chain around the dears.

Lubrication should be a topical issue.

I think this subject is an excellent choice for a superb black and white image.
Rust is good, but this treatment is very special and great to see.

I like the texture of the chain and the sense of movement even though it hasn't moved for years.

Love the B&W. It emphasizes the beautiful shapes instead of being distracted by textures.
