Oxidation is something that occurs all around us. For most people this is a bad thing, an annoyance that has ruined their car, tools, bike, etc. For me though it is amazing, I love the changing of colors, how an object can go from the perfect specimen to an unrecognizable object when photographed close-up to show the layers of texture and color changes. I have always had an obsession with broken, run down places and objects…. as if you couldn’t tell  ?    Hope you enjoy these images.

Treasured Art

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” is the perfect saying for the images here, they are from the backyard of my boyfriends grandfathers house. He took ordinary items and turned them into art in the form of a wind chime. He was a Collector, Painter, and a Business man as well and the items that were in and out of this mans house I could have literally been there for hours if not a day ! Well to be truthful I actually have shot there a couple of times before, I should go through my negatives and see what I can find! It really is funny how people perceive things differently I love finding old dusty abandoned buildings or weathered objects, I suppose I enjoy it because it gives me the opportunity to try to show it to people in a different perspective, one where they might see the beauty that I see in it.
