Music and rust

Hi Everybody!

For Tag Tuesday I have another hybrid tag. The 
background is a photo taken here looking along
 the Rhine. The other elements
were added digitally. The quote, is, of course,
from Shakespeare:

At the old steel-works in Duisburg I was wondering
what was interesting about this dark passage, 
until I went it:

You can look through windows right and left and see 
down into the old works. An old black and white film
shows scenes from the time when it was being
worked, and the rest is illumined by lights in bright
blue, red and green. It was rather spooky and very surreal:

Outside it seemed very grey after all the bright colours:

Spiders still seem to live there:

I loved the rusty, old machines, I'm sure Elizabeth
will love them, too!

And the old gasometer is now used as an indoor and 
inland diver's paradise - you can read more about it 
and see wonderful photos here:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!


  1. Great make, love yur photo in the background and of course a wonderful quote! And wow, that is some passage, and who knew that industrial can be so fascinating.....

  2. Fab addition of the Rhine in your creation, love your gorgeousness here.xx[aNNie]🎄

  3. Love the tag, with your photo in the background, I know how you love 'your' Rhine. The photos from Duisburg are really exciting today, like modern, arty stained glass windows, just fabulous. I am determined to go there soon, and if P knows about the diving, I can probably persuade him! Have a nice day, and get plenty of rest. Hugs, Sarah

  4. Dein Tag ist so bezaubernd so liebevoll ausgedacht von dir und es strahlt so schön gegen das Wetter was ich habe hier mit Regen und trübe mal wieder!
    Interessant das so zu sehen deine Fotos von Duisburg!
    Schönen Mittwoch!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  5. Beautiful piece today, that photo of the river you used is absolutely stunning! Wow, that set up with all the bright lights is super creepy and yet amazingly interesting! That must have been quite an experience visiting this place! hugs :)

  6. Really nice artwork today Valerie. Your photo makes a great background for the musical images. The sun really acts like a sparkle of magic. And that industrial park is really a smart way to utilize old industrial areas. The inland diving area was cool, and I love the colors. I think it was a smart way to show what the area used to be. Thanks for sharing. :) Hugs-Erika

  7. Your photo makes a great backdrop to your tag. The colored lights inside the steelworks looks very sci-fi. Almost expect robots or androids to appear. Have a good day!

    1. It would have been fun with robots and androids!

  8. Looks like you maxed out your visit to Duisburg. That was a fascinating display in the tunnel -- nice that they had the vintage movie. Adds to understanding the "all" of it.

  9. Lovely tag and I really enjoyed the photos of the old steel mill. hugs, Teresa

  10. Just love the words on the tag and the tag is beautiful!
    So nice to see all of your photographs.

    All the best Jan

  11. That's a wonderful tag. I always love music, so I will find time to play along soon, even though my tag will never be as lovely as yours.

    It was like a LIGHT SHOW in that tunnel. Yes, it did seem a bit surreal, but also incredibly informative, too.

    My heart is still going pitter patter from all that rust and those old machines. They are simply out of this world beautiful. I could revisit this post until time freezes over, and never see or experience all the beauty from the light show and the rust. This is incredible!!!!!

  12. Wieder ein echtes Träumchen dein Tag mit dem tollen Hintergrundfoto. Gefällt mir sehr. Dein Trip nach Duisburg beschert uns hier wieder fantastische Fotos. Super,danke fürs Teilen.
    Liebe Grüße und schöne Restwoche

  13. I love how you used a photo of the Rhine for your tag and you showcased it so beautifully with the digital elements - wonderful! Wow, your photos of the bright lights are stunning and such a contrast to the greyness. Have a lovely week! J 😊

  14. It is a wonderful way to use your photo Valerie, the tag looks fabulous and I love the colour tones you used.
    Great photos and what an amazing show through the tunnel windows, it must have been incredible to see.
