Mystery Monday

Anywhere and Everywhere

This will be a blog post that I will continue to update anytime I share a #mysterymonday post in social media. Based on the fun interesting responses to my first Mystery Monday photo I shared, I thought I would give this a try. It will allow viewers to see the history of the photos and what the photo subject is, since some photos are not apparent at initial view.

The more abstract and macro view of the world we live in has always interested me. There can be really fascinating photos pretty much everywhere if you are willing to narrow your focus down to subjects that measure in inches instead of hundreds of feet, or even many miles. Although small isn't always the recipe. At times it can be a different angle, weather, or way of photographing a given subject that causes a viewer to pause trying to understand what it might be.

"Blue Crackle" - While this does appear to be a close up of dried mud or dirt, it's not. In fact among the more than dozen answers on social media no one was close. When I saw this I knew it had real potential. It is a close up macro view of a larger subject. The larger subject is actually a decaying tire from old farm equipment. I had never seen anything like this in regards to a tire. I suspect it's decades old allowing the slow unique transition by Mother Nature.

"Burning" - While leading a workshop in the Palouse region we stopped at an area that had old farm equipment. One subject that myself and a couple participants took interest in was an old farm combine harvester. There was a number of interesting details, many comprised of rusting metal. Yet there was one area that I am pretty sure was thick decaying rubber. It seemed too thick to be vinyl. There was a large cut through it so I could see the thickness. It was painted red. This photo is a macro composition showing the peeling rubber which gave a unique contrast between the black rubber and the red paint slowly decomposing. Needless to say we all had fun with this little spot.
