Photograph - Photography
Found this antiquated hitch laying in the dirt out at the old Koloa Mill when I took a tour. This rusted hitch was laying on the ground half buried from being stepped on and driven over, so I call it Unhitched. It vintage, antiquated and has found a place among my old relics, though I have a friend who has coveted this relic. I may give it to him.
Rust has a beauty all its own. Photographing a rusted object at just the right moment makes for some interesting, if not abstract photography.
The basic soil components of all these Hawaiian Islands is iron oxide. Our soil is red. It's the same as rust. When an object rusts and turns red and decays, it is basically returning to its original component, iron oxide. Other forms of rust are green, which is caused by the interest of iron and chloride.
But in no way is rust confined to these Islands. It happens all over the world. Rust is formed by an interaction of iron and oxygen along with moisture in the air. Given a length of time, anything iron will rust and disintegrate.
