Artistic | Metal was this weeks theme. As I look back on it I realize that I was a bit tunnel visioned in regards to my idea’s and approach as I could have probably taken this in a few other directions, however to chose to focus on finding instances of metal in nature.
My main idea was to find places where the man made metal could be interpreted as being man’s influence on the natural world and show tried to find images that showed metal as a prominent part of a nature photograph. I did experiment with a few quasi macro style photos of different metal objects but wasn’t quite as excited about those.
In the end the photo I settled on was an old rusty tire rim that has been forgotten and a strand of barbed wire arcing across the image while snow and dry grasses from nature try to reclaim the land as their own.
