In the town of Rust, there are many monuments. They stand as a tribute to the people who have made Rust what it is today and those who contributed to its growth. One of these monuments stands out from the rest. It’s not that it’s taller or prettier, but that it stands alone in solitude. The monument is located on a hilltop overlooking Rust Town Center and was erected in honor of all those who lost their lives during the Great Floods of 2076.
Many Rust residents have lost loved ones and friends to a variety of causes. When the town was rebuilt after the floods, it was named in honor of those who perished.
However, for some people on their visit to Rust Town Center, there is always one particular monument that draws them closer — as if they were being drawn in by an unseen hand. It’s not uncommon for visitors to reflect upon what life must be like now at this place where ghosts are said to still linger: “a sad reminder of all we had.”
The monument is dedicated to those who died in the Great Floods of 2076. It stands alone, apart from all other Rust Town Center monuments, and has been left untouched by time or nature as a symbol of remembrance for its residents.
It’s not uncommon for visitors to reflect upon what life must be like now at this place where ghosts are said to still linger: “a sad reminder of all we had.” The people buried here were lost during one of Rust’s most tragic moments and their stories deserve being told.

Rust is a natural occurrence in the weather, and monuments are not immune to it. Rust can be caused by humidity or salt mixture which will eventually destroy the monument. Unlike other countries like Japan where rusting steel monuments are common because of their proximity to water (aka sea air), Rust has become an issue for many European nations due to its dry climate. However, there have been attempts at preserving these beautiful structures with special paint that contains metal particles; but they come out expensive and most often than not cannot keep up with the rate of corrosion if left untreated over time.

Rust is an element of decay in nature. It’s a reminder not to get too attached, because everything around us will eventually be gone. These rust monuments were once proud structures – but now they’re abandoned relics from the past. Their deterioration captures their feelings of sadness, loneliness or abandonment. Looking at them can remind us of how transient we all really are. In photography we see things as being more important than they actually are, which makes these pictures even more poignant when you consider what was lost here and how much it cost to build something that had such meaning for so many people before its destruction came along with time itself…creeping.
Standing in solitude, this monument is a reminder of the people who lost their lives during the Great Floods. It stands as an honor to those who have made Rust what it is today and contributed to its growth. What are your thoughts on how monuments should be used? Do you think they’re merely for show or do they serve other purposes too?
