Weekly Photo Challenge: Rusty Nail

Rusty Nail

This week’s challenge is all about forces of nature, so I thought I’d focus on something common, but overlooked: Oxidation. Rust forms when iron comes into contact with things like water and oxygen, and even more so with salt water. This chemical reaction happens everywhere, perhaps most famously with the Statue of Liberty; it was made of copper, but years of ocean weather gave its surface a blue/green patina. If you want something a little more local, try finding an old nail…like this one on my back porch. Large version available here.

Beneath The Paint

This week’s challenge calls for the Rule of Thirds, so I took a close-up shot a wall nearby.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic, Or: Malama Keane Remnant

Malama Keanae Relic

Malama Keanae is an absolutely stunning detour along the Road To Hana. Dazzling blue waters, ancient lava flows, and dense vegetation everywhere. If you bring your lunch along for the ride, this is a great place to stop. If you park right by the entrance to area, you’ll probably notice an old dock amidst the natural splendor…along with this rusty relic of a bygone era.

Lahaina Relic

On the way to Lahaina Harbor, I came across the Hale Pa‘ahao Prison. While it’s a small museum, it still has some interesting relics to see.

For this week’s Odd Ball Challenge, I went back and look through a few random photos I took during my first time in Chinatown. It didn’t disappoint.
