Rust. That’s the focus of the current PhotoPlay at The High Calling.
In basic terms, rust happens when iron and oxygen react to each other in the presence of water or air moisture. The crazy thing about it is that iron is relatively unaffected when by pure water or dry air. While both are harmless by themselves, they cause great damage to the metal when combined. Eventually it becomes so deteriorated that it’s no longer useful and cannot fulfill its purpose.
The cool thing is that there are ways to protect metal from rust. They usually involve some sort of coating or other layered treatment. Essentially, a protective layer can stop it from being changed by the harmful elements.
The solution isn’t to remove it from its environment, but to protect it from the damaging effects of the world around it.
This raises two questions for me…
How is your environment impacting you?
What protective layers are you applying so that you fulfill your purpose in an abusive environment?
While pondering those questions, please enjoy the rest of my photos for this project…
