On the side of some machine in the boatyard. When I took it, I thought it looked a bit like a map of North America with Florida missing. But the more I looked at it, the less I saw the map, so now I am just posting it as a colorful abstract.

I definitely saw the same resemblance you did! And the border with Canada is almost spot on. Great find!

A fabulous close up image with beautiful light and color. At first I also thought it was an old map. I like the darker and lighter parts of the rust. It creates depth and almost a multi dimensional effect.
